Well, IMHO it's not really clean at all that /var/run is completely wiped...

But what do you dislike?  Moving the socket into the postfix chroot?  Or
creating the links?  The mysql link is not really needed as it's easy to
configure the location of the sock in my.cnf.  Same for the saslauthd link.

The links from /var/run -> /var/spool/postfix/var/run are
"compatability" links for "legacy" applications, so to speak.  As far as
these applications are concerned, the links are not needed.
