/usr/doc has been deprecated for a long time. and yes, the responsible
package is 'sysutils' i think:

fishbowl:/usr/share/doc/sysutils> dpkg -S /usr/doc
sysutils: /usr/doc

however, there's no info int the changelog (bug #96211 *doesn't* seem to
relate to this actually).

i think /usr/doc isn't necessary, and i haven't seen it on newer woody
systems, but i'd like to know what exactly is causing it to disappear on
existing systems. it's still there on my older woodies, even though they
are upgraded at least weekly.
