I think it's a big problem.
How about "hoogle" package don't contain database,
and we don't provide "hoogle-data" package also.
It's good solution for me, that "hoogle" package automatically execute
If the command got error, user manually run "update-hoogle" command.
The "update-hoogle" command is equivalent to "hoogle data" command.
If hoogle's database is located at /var/lib/hoogle/xxxx,
the database can be update by user own.
