So you would have these files stored in /var/run from the beginning, and use
mount --move to shuffle them around if /var is a separate mount point?  I'm
pretty sure --move is a 2.6-only feature, too, and we haven't yet gotten rid
of 2.4 for etch; and is there an equivalent solution for non-Linux ports?

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
