Well, there is the slight point that if you ship /var/run/foo in your
package, you (a) probably use /var/run/foo just assuming it exists
because, after all, you shipped in in your package; (b) if you actually
mkdir -p it, you have two different ways that /var/run/foo could be
created, and possibly with two different sets of permissions.
