Didn't notice where to stick iwads in the policy, so while updating my
installers to generate .gwa files from glbsp (Thanks Darren) I've used
the following locations for iwads:

/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/doomu	(Ultimate Doom)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/doom2	(Doom 2)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/tnt		(TNT Evilution)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/plutonia	(Plutonia Experiment)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/heretic	(Heretic)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/hexen	(Hexen)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/hexdd	(Hexen: Deathkings)

I haven't yet added an alternatives system yet, but feel free to send a
patch if you decide to use them. I plan at some stage (if I get time) to
try and make installers for the following.

/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/doom		(Registered Doom)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/heretic1	(Shareware Heretic)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/strife0	(Strife Demo)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/strife	(Strife)

Assuming this is a good system then freedoom and doom-shareware need to
be adjusted like this.

/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/doom1	(Shareware Doom)
/usr/share/games/doom/iwad/freedoom	(Freedoom)

My installers basically work like this:
Ask for the path to the iwad.
Install IWAD
(If TNT, install tnt31 patch)
Lowercase the name.
Run GLBSP to build the .gwa

Packages are currently built for Ubuntu Dapper, Sarge Packages should be
available by the end of the week.
