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.
