Please Progeny guys, make everyone's day and do this. It shouldn't even
be too hard to do; dpkg parses the tars itself to install files as
.dpkg-new at first, so you just have to hook into the right places and
make it do nothing for some files. (Famous last words.) And there is
even dpkg.cfg already to put the exclude regexps in.

see shy jo, who has a 30 mb (uncompressed) debian install, which was
            _not_ fun to do
