right. I would also complain about this :)

why don't you put them in the proper place?! :) (And this is not about 
debian's policy, but the the FHS, which sus*/ub*ntu and other also try to 
follow...

Also I dont understand why they are in a directory called "disabled" - can we 
just remove / not install them?
