Are there any objections to symlinking /var/run to /run
(unless /var/run is already a rw, persistent, and non-network-
mounted directory)?

  * One path /var/run to all runtime state files -- no need to
      attend to how early in the boot sequence the file is used
  * No need to move files currently in /var/run to /run
  * No need to amend FHS
