It would be nice at some point if the BTS could have cross-package
merged reports, but I suspect that's more of a headache than its worth.

Assuming everything in /usr/lib gets magically moved to /usr/lib64 by
dpkg, what if the postinst (run after the magic moving) fiddles in
/usr/lib ?  You'd have to rewrite postinst as well, in which case it's
no longer the same postinst file after all.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
