Subject: [DNG] new freedesktop "standard": /etc/machine-id

re all,

any thoughts about this new systemd-made thing that freedesktop
immediately "standardized" (whatever is their procedure for that,
likely smoking cigars among old-boys or so)

its easy to replace by a script of course that's not the problem (the
manpage suggests to use a systemd application for that, not a joke!)
but I'm curious if anyone has some background and thoughts about this

AFAIK chromium started checking it and its absence on Devuan Beowulf
is reported as an error, so we may have to work around this.

but first things first: do we want /etc/machine-id? and how?
