I don't think so.

How feasible is this for Debian to do without FHS backup? If not, then
we should draft a proposal to the FHS folk pushing /run.

(I's still prefer /state because it's more obvious, but if /var/state
is being replaced by /var/run, there has to be a rationale, so we'll
go with it.)
