Actually, it's sarge.

That's not my concern.  I can deal with the issues on my machine,
just fine.

But this is reminding me of some of the pain from the /usr/doc ->
/usr/share/doc/ transition.  [Where most everyone thought it was easy
right up until it became a big hairy mess.]  I'd rather not go through
something like that again.  [And why did we go through that at all?
For LSB compliance.]
