That wouldn't do anything useful, though (like allow you to remount /usr

Oh, well, that too, obviously.

The cruft is there anyway, it just doesn't have a file name. Once the
processes die, the cruft'll be cleaned up on the next apt-get run,

Of course even if you don't have philosophical objections, the scripts
aren't particularly time or space efficient, either, more so during
upgrades rather than after.
