We should probably not even think of moving /usr/info/* to

I have already stated this several times, `info' has a large number
of directories in its default INFOPATH, including /usr/share/info.
The same could be said for the man program.
man-db's conffile can be easily adjusted to use /usr/share/man (it
needs to be adjusted to store cat pages in /var/cache/man as well,
Ian Jackson has already expressed his opinion that moving /var/lib/dpkg to
/var/state/dpkg is a bad idea (which package is supposed to do that,
and how will dpkg know that things have moved?).
He expressed the opinion that it is a gratuitous change, not that it
is too difficult. If you look at the dpkg postinst, you can see that
it has code to move /var/adm/dpkg to /var/lib/dpkg and change the
format of some files in the process. If anything, moving from
/var/lib/dpkg to /var/state/dpkg is a simpler process.
squid should default to /var/cache/www for new installs. TeX and such
should cache fonts in /var/cache/fonts
