Lennart wants mtab to be a symlink to /proc/mounts:

Could you explain in more detail? On my F14 it isn't very informative:

dmesg | grep mounts
<no output>

dmesg | grep mount
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.

No, it isn't ... in relation to systemd in F15, it is necessary
currently to have /etc/mtab just as a symlink to /proc/self/mounts.
