As an upstream maintainer (planner-el, a pretty handy organizer)
hoping to learn how to make good Debian packages, I'm looking forward
to learning the Right Way to do things. I'm having the same problems
here. I have to mark the autoloads in site-start.d as a conffile so
that lintian doesn't complain, but because they're config files, they
don't get removed unless the package is purged.

I took a look at gnus, but it seems to have its own custom
emacsen.install - at least, it's not the emacsen-install debhelper
gives me, and the debian/rules looks a bit confusing. I still need
debhelper - training wheels!

Should I stick something into one of those rm scripts? What's the
Right Thing to Do?
