I am not going to contribute to this discussion anymore.

(read: you might start laughing at my mistake...)


case "$1" in
#       install-info --quiet --remove /usr/info/amavis-perl.info.gz
        for i in /var/lib/amavis /var/lib/amavis/virusmails /var/run/amavis
                dpkg-statoverride --remove $i
        echo "prerm called with unknown argument \`$1'" >&2
        exit 1

I looked for a postrm, but couldn't find one, I never thought
of looking for a prerm file :-(. Now why did I do that?

I probably should move this code to the purge rule of postrm...
