Hard links in Debian package...

The latest .deb available has hard links in it, which makes the install fail if /opt and /usr aren't on the same filesystem.

Error from apt-get:

Unpacking 1password (8.0.30-53266) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/1password_8.0.30-53266_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 error creating hard link './opt/1Password/usr/share/icons/hicolor/64x64/1password.png': Invalid cross-device link

Can these become symbolic links, which will work, or not be links at all? The app takes 250 megabytes of disk space, we can accord to have two copies of these icons. :)

Thanks!
