Now I have a problem :) I interpret your notation as: before, we have a
directory /foo/bar; after, we have a symlink /foo/bar.

Where is the directory supposed to go after I run the script's option?

I've looked into the debian policy and the only specific thing I've
found is about symlinks (in section 10.5. of
/usr/share/doc/debian-policy/policy.txt.gz), that basically describes
the cases when a link should be absolute and when relative. Did you
refer to something else?

TIA and all the best,
