Thanks for that tip.

dh_installdocs README TODO examples/README
        install -g 0 -o 0 -d debian/libxml-rss-perl/usr/share/doc/libxml-rss-perl
        cp -a README debian/libxml-rss-perl/usr/share/doc/libxml-rss-perl
        cp -a TODO debian/libxml-rss-perl/usr/share/doc/libxml-rss-perl
        cp -a examples/README debian/libxml-rss-perl/usr/share/doc/libxml-rss-perl

Doesn't seem like dh_installdocs is doing the right thing there.  It's
trying to overwrite the first README.  Maybe it should use:

       cp --parents example/README debian/libxml-rss-perl/usr/share/doc/libxml-rss-perl

Yes.  Don't normally need to execute README files.
