What subdirs will we have then?

/run/run  (formerly /var/run)
/run/init (formerly /lib/init/rw)
/run/lock (formerly /var/lock)

or will one of the formerlies become the /run and the other subdirs. or
will /var/run and /lib/init/rw be merged into just /run and /run/lock
for locks?

Depending on that upgrade options change so we should nail that down
