Surely, then, someone misspelled "/etc" when creating this directory --
since as this discussion has shown, file function and statefulness has
nothing to do with the proper placement of files used before all
filesystems are fully mounted. ;-)

I'll defer to those who maintain that /run is clutter, so long as
they're willing to merge /root in with /etc.
