Seriously? We have a well supported mechanism for splitting the base
system across different file systems. It's called mount points. We
support no way to install a system with symlinks in random places, that
has to be done by hand. If a user has such special needs to have such a
special setup with all the associated sources of problems, they can also
manage to update sets by hand and include -P.
