Seems to me that symlinks provided by a distribution would be usefull
as a transitional measure only.  Until applications eventually move
over to the new /dev locations.  So...

Part of any application's perogerative is to deal with the platform(s)
it runs on.  Wine makes some special allowances for Solaris, and

so...  there a theme here?
