Right, but I didn't know a better way to handle that.  I could say
something in the postinst, but that'll only help the installer.  So I
settled on the README.1st.  I'd be happy to entertain better
solutions.  Perhaps this behavior should be filed as a bug upstream...

I like the man points to info idea...
