OK, as there was no objection we start with STEP 1 now. I already uploaded
"my" packages not using installdeb-myspell with that change.
(installdeb-myspell-using packges either need extra stuff or need to
wait until I fixed dictionaries-common-dev to install in the new location
with compat symlinks)

Bugs will come soon for the non-installdeb-myspell ones and the other
ones when dictionaries-common-dev is fixed.
