I'm using the Debian cfengine2 packages, and I'm sorely tempted to
repacakge the lot because of that retarded layout.

So, when I bootstrap a Debian server I have to remember to remove all
the symlinks and fix up /var/lib/cfengine2 directory before it gets
enrolled, otherwise my initial update.conf turns the inputs directory
into a file.

So, I feel your pain, but probably the right course of action is to file
lots of bugs on the Debian package and try to convince the maintainer
that /etc/cfengine2 and /var/lib/cfengine2 shouldn't be symlinked.

As for the name 'cfengine2' thats a whole other rant...
