It seems to me that it would be a lot less effort to fix this by removing
file-rc in Debian, which has only a handful (137) of popcon reports.  Even
if we take into consideration that popcon isn't a good source of absolute
numbers, this comes out to .2% of popcon reports that we're spending this
effort on, and for what benefit?
