I think this is not a good idea. Where are these html/info files supposed
to be generated? Will they remove by itself when you purge the package?
This has technical problems which I'm not sure they worth the effort.
Moreover, a .texi file is a *source* file, and, in principle, should not
be distributed in a *binary* package.
I think it would be much better to supply foo-doc-ps.deb or
foo-doc-dvi.deb as well.
I guess we will end up being the very best documented Linux distribution :-)
