I have some 3.0.x policy packages from before the tech-ctte vote.  They're
built with debhelper and use /usr/doc.  A rebuild would result in
/usr/share/doc without pain.  I don't think they should be rebuilt on that
account alone--wasted bandwidth, especially since I believe quake-lib is
among them.

I might need to upload a new quake-lib for other reasons (internal changes
to the quake packages and their configurations themselves) but not every
3.0.x package fully complies with 3.0.x--many were FHS sans /usr/share/doc
because /usr/share/doc wasn't ready to be used.
