Yes, though the slocate maintainer scripts scare the hell out of me, and
ISTR that the maintainer is somewhat MIA. Shall we make coordinated
uploads of your locate and mine, and propose a patch to slocate? (I can
prepare it, my fears notwithstanding.) I guess dlocate would need an
upload as well.

How to handle the cron.daily script, though?
