+Instead of [adding alternatives][alts] one at a time, [it would be nice][bb-ua]
+to manage all of `busybox`'s utility links using `update-alternatives`.
Unfortunately, the [maintainer script][bb.pi] that runs `update-alternatives`
(as well as the [`update-alternatives` script][u-a] itself) needs a few

`busybox` is deconfigured, a newer version can't be configured. `busybox` also
can't be configured when first unpacked by `prokit`.
