a) I didn't previously know about that file

b) the first machine I want to check (which was installed by someone else, and
I can't ask them) doesn't even have that file (although I have found it on
other machines)

I'd be interested if anyone knows of other tell-tale signs which can show
(perhaps traces of Debian which a Devuan upgrade doesn't remove?) how a
machine came to be running Devuan.
