We have mostly settled the /usr/share/locale question, and apparently
/usr/share/doc is a special exception anyway....
But in case you need to install other stuff to /usr/share from a
library package: note that anything you compress with gzip, you should
use -n, so you'll get the same bits on every build. And obviously
think about the same issues for other "generated" files in /usr/share.
I suppose /usr/share in library packages is fairly rare anyway.
