Indeed. Though I'd prefer for code to stay in /usr. Combining
both the configuration and the code in one /etc-script doesn't
seem to me like a very bright idea.
Having separate update-locate handle has an additional benefit
of allowing one to start database update by hand ``in a clean
way'' (compare, e. g., # /etc/init.d/foo start vs. # invoke-rc.d
Whoever does the work does the decision, though.
