Only, if you implement this in your package, which is an init
replacement, what about other packages that may need this in the
future (or that are currently using /dev/shm when we'd rather they
didn't)? As the standard init does not mount it, they can't count on
/run being available, so either they do it themselves, or we get the
standard init to provide /run as well.
Thoughts about the latter?
