Wu wei

Wu wei provides systems administration tools targeted at BSD Unices such as FreeBSD and macOS. The intent of these tools are to rely heavily upon the correctness of Unix, such as respecting hier(7), and thus are not expected to work on typical Linux distribitions.

Currently the executable pao changes to the user's home directory, reads in a sequence of source/target mappings from a YAML file in .pao and attempts to create them. If the target exists and is a symbolic link it will be removed and replaced, otherwise pao will refuse to clobber it.

An example .pao file for macOS and easily tweakable for other operating systems is located in examples/macos.pao.
