IIRC replacing a dir with a symlink needs special care
True, but note that the method documented in the Packaging Guidelines
no longer works either (IIRC, because DNF aborts the RPM transaction

fixed by running the scriptlets). We'll probably need to figure out a
"modern" way to handle this scenario ...
