It looks like it's not neccessary. I'm not sure what the original
intention was, but it should be safe to change debhelper and debstd to
if [-x /usr/sbin/suidregister ]; then
suidregister -s PACKAGE FILE OWNER GROUP PERMS
in the postinst. I'll fix the documentation in the next release. I'm planning
to rewrite suidmanager in Perl, which I hope will give me a better understanding
of it's exact behavior, and make it easier to add features.
