I was against the TC instructing you how to behave in detail in our
resolution, because I couldn't imagine that anyone would think that
tidiness was more important than not breaking things for our users.

Are you really going to prove me wrong?

How much is it costing you to keep the symlink there?

Do you expect that cost to ever exceed the effort of responding to even
the first bug reported about this, when you turn out to have broken
someone's locally-written script?

Actually, do you expect it to ever exceed the effort already wasted in
responding to this thread by you and us?

It's pretty clear that if you do decide to go ahead and remove
/usr/bin/nodejs quickly, that someone is likely to kick the matter back
up to the TC.

I for one will have absolutely no sympathy with your side of the case at
that point, not only because I think it is senseless, but also because
you'll have been responsible for wasting the time of all involved.

I will also not be even slightly timid about micro-managing you the
second time around, since if that comes to pass you'll have demonstrated
the need.

Be warned.

Cheers, Phil.
