IMHO, I should be able to NFS-mount /usr read-only from one server for
a whole lab of computers, *and* I should be able to exclude /usr from
a backup as long as I keep the output of `dpkg --get-selections'.
A very simple solution would to create a symlink from
/usr/share/packagename/conffile to /etc/packagename/conffile.
