Please, don't treat me as a clueless newbie. The package in question
is exim4-doc-html, the documentation for Debian's default MTA. The
fact that I maintain that package should show that I have been around
the block multiple times.
What you outline is exactly what I wrote in my original question. I am
pretty well aware of the technical possibilities. I am just pondering
which of the two ways to go, and re-iterating the possibilities along
with "it's your choice" doesn't help much.
