I think it's worth considering whether we should just dump the Lintian
checks for arch-independent files in /usr/lib, and make a corresponding
change to Policy that says that packages are free to put arch-independent
files there.  No one is ever going to bother to move the files in, say,
LibreOffice into /usr/share, since the theoretical gain totally isn't
worth the effort in maintaining the package.
