I look forward to seeing the details. 

One concern that I have is that we are back to having
users/distributions able to specify very many individual paths. 

If we want uniform behaviour from our users and distributors, then it
would be worth reducing the number of things that they can set, and that
we have to test.  That's why I did --with-sockets-dir for example, which
allows us to add more sockets without adding more parameters that
distributions have to keep up with.
