There is code in cabal-debian for mapping files back to the debian
packages that provide them. Though that code is currently not used for
finding the names of the -doc package dependencies.

If package A has hyperlinks to documents in package B, then the doc
package for A needs to depend on the doc package B. But, when
cabal-debian is run on package A, how does it know what the names of
the files in doc package for B are? If we can figure that out -- then
I think the rest is easy.
