This is an excellent idea.  It doesn't quite touch on the current
dual-interface conflict with install-info, unfortunately.

The options I see are:

(1) provide a clean interface to install-info,
(2) provide an alien interface to dpkg-dir-hooks,
(3) ignore the problem.

er... and
(4) some combination of the above.
