By putting symlink control in a single package, you also gain control over the symlink issues that users are bound to create them on their own, and can easily update/revise the symlink setup by updates to a single package. I think it is a good idea. Something like 'tde-tdesymlinks' or 'trinity-tdesymlinks' sounds like a reasonable name. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
