Dear Luca,

If the lib package ships the binary program, nothing will depend on the
lib and it will be removed by deborphan.

Also, you can have /usr/share/doc/thinkfinger-tools be a symlink to
/usr/share/doc/libthinkfinger if you strictly depend on the same

But why calling the package which carries the binary thinkfinger-tools
and not simply thinkfinger?

Have a nice day,
