The two directories
have similar ownership and permissions, but they are set up differently:
localhost is "delivered" writable, while Catalina is delivered without
but is then set so in postinst (and re-set at each upgrade). This seems
confusing. Would it be worthwhile to handle them both in the same way?
Maybe some other things in postinst could get the same treatment.
(Simple is easier to keep secure.)
