Packages (e.g. A), which want to be registerd by another package (eg. B), should
create a file F (eg. /usr/lib/xref/B.todo/A) to avoid such a
problem. File F
may contain some options for B.
If B is installed later it should check this directory.
It may be possible to run a command (eg. /usr/lib/xref/B.update) after
installing/updateting several packages. This program can check the directory and
updates the internal files of B.
This could be useful for menu dwww ...
