One (general Debian) question about package splitting... the one thing that annoys me about splitting doc packages is that I can't simply say "X's doc is at /usr/share/doc/X"; no, it's also at "/usr/share/doc/X-doc" and "/usr/share/doc/X-apidoc" and "/usr/share/doc/X-javadoc". I can't just browse through one single doc directory. I have to type the name of the package several time because tab completion doesn't work well under /usr/share/doc (too many files).
Why can't package X-doc put the documentation under /usr/share/doc/X instead of /usr/share/doc/X-doc?
