readahead is a bit dumb. One possible fix for this ongoing problem
that was proposed involves moving away from a flat text file to
a selection of files in /etc/sysconfig/readahead/ which would be
owned by each application.
Not only would this solve the problem of files changing when they get
updated, but it would also mean we wouldn't bother trying to open
non-existent files when packages aren't installed.
(Though that's a very cheap operation)
