	I like the rest of this mail a lot. We can even default
 PRENET_VARIABLE_DATA to be /etc/managed/var, or something, so we are
 not creating non FHS dirs by default on every Debian machine; and
 that can be changed by people who mount / readonly, and have packages
 that modify configuration files at run time.

 People are always available for work in the past tense.
