yeah you're probably right -- i also recall several machines with
broken links that worked fine (so fine in fact, that i did not notice
the links were broken for a good week or so).

i'd like to see a `tree /etc/systemd` on Karol's machine ...

(aside: btw, Karol, you and i have the same first name, but the K
makes it much kewler ... but i digress ;-)

hrm, i thought it was doing it in post_install but i dunno ... for a
long time it was installing directly to /etc/systemd/[...] but i'm not
sure it's even doing that anymore.

good point about you're methods -- i knew about the mask part (which
links to /dev/null ... i think :-) but i had forgotten about the
pacman stuff, thanks.
