What about using a sed-like mechanism (I mean, in s/.../.../
commands) allowing rules as "/usr/doc/examples/\1 ->
BTW allowing such rules to be set up at any time after package
installation would provide a mechanism to "locally fix" packages using
an old version of the policy, without systematically re-downloading
them (in case just the layout has changed).
