9 No, that is incorrect.
11 /run is a deliberate design decision (and a damn good one that should
12 always have been there IMHO) and it sticks around because it is
13 supposed to. It's not an after-effect that just happens to be useful,
14 it's the entire objective.
16 Think of it in the same way you think of /dev, /proc and /sys:
18 There are there, there are guaranteed to be there with certain
19 behaviours, and you can't change that (neither should you want to).
