Every time someone says this, something winds up breaking anyway,
because of some kind of oddness like situations where the symlinks
aren't read or become recursive, or selinux issues (always a fun one)!
I am running my F16 system with all these symlinks now for quiet a
while. Despite the consolehelper symlinks, I have not encountered any
problem. Even rpm updates seem to work fine. But I agree, the devil is
in the detail, and we surely will find something, which does not work.
But I don't think, these problems are severe and not easily fixable.
