Any reason not to use the debianistas code? It does cause some subtle
breakage in some cases, but it broke first on debian/ubuntu and the
fallout is over. By which I mean: app developers already cursed and
added fixes/workarounds/documentation to deal with it; that road is

Doing it differently means breaking in new and original ways, and a
new round of cursing...

Interesting to hear. That'll be good news when it happens.
