There's a third now, thanks to union mounts. Slap a large enough union
mounted filesystem over / like some whopping great sheet of plastic,
install the package, then peel it off by umounting / and remounting it
somewhere else to see what you're looking at (after you delete all the
junk in it's /tmp and /var/log).
