So, after commiting this I thought a bit more about this and made a
couple of additional changes:

- I did introduce symlink_atomic() after all, since symlinks can't
  otherwise be overwritten atomically this does make sense after
  all. Sorry for the confusion about this earlier.

- I made handling of /etc/timezone a Debian-only thing now

- I changed the code generate a relative symlink rather than an absolute
  one. People dealing with OS subtrees will like this

I am quite happy with the new state of affairs I must say.
