Bug#218042: modules-config relies on files in /usr/share/doc

Package: apache-common
Version: 1.3.28-4
Severity: serious

I noticed this through #217035, but this is a separate bug in itself.

Policy section 12.3, "Additional Documentation":

     Packages must not require the existence of any files in
     `/usr/share/doc/' in order to function [1].  Any files that are
     referenced by programs but are also useful as standalone documentation
     should be installed under `/usr/share/<package>/' with symbolic links
     from `/usr/share/doc/<package>'.

/usr/sbin/modules-config:181:   cp /usr/share/doc/$FLA/examples/*.conf /etc/$FLA/

By the way, isn't "modules-config" a bit too generic as a name for this tool?
Shouldn't it have "apache" in its name somewhere?
