Bug#850967: Clarify /usr/bin/foo should not be hardcoded even in upstream parts

Overall, I agree with Sam here, it's hard to come up with hard rules
about this, and as long as upstream and the Debian maintainer have
thought properly through the tradeoffs, I'd generally be inclined to
trust them.

(In the particular case of gpg and gpg-agent, I generally think
dpkg-diverting it should be fine for debugging, since few systems that
have private key material on them should be multiuser systems.)
