I said "new systems", not systems that are being upgraded.

I'm not ignoring it, I just don't think it's a problem.
If today's in-place upgrades don't allow /var/spool/mail to be a
symbolic link, then they are broken. The same would be true for
/var/mail on a system that still mounted the spool on /var/spool/mail.
