I do not have any strong feelings about this. - If people think it to
be the smart thing to do I can change it. However as the respective
file is a dpkg-conffile it will be a PITA (I would mv
/etc/cron.daily/find /etc/cron.daily/zz_find in preinst on upgrades)
and I do not want to repeat the exercise.

Therefore I am asking for more comments on -devel /before/
implementing any actions.
