Given the need, and now the reality, of /run, is there any need for a separate /var/run? I vote we migrate to /var/run -> /run, at least in the default install. Whether packages should continue to refer to /var/run is a matter of FHS touchy feely, and perhaps compatibility with other FHS distributions is more important than the ability to eliminate the /var/run symlink in the long run.
