No point setting oneself up for bugs if it is not necessary.
The script wouldn't determine anything, it would simply append paths to
the package's list of paths. The Maintainer would need to call the
script "right after file generation succeeds", or perhaps with a list
of files just generated, or as part of an install if packageless files
are known to exist.
