        Enthusiam for the complicated? More like enthusiasm for
 correctness, or not rushing in  where angels fear to tread ...

         dpkg may well have problems with the symlink, so any
 packages still installing in /usr/doc/<package> could cause problems
 with dpkg. Since the move is likely to take a long time, this grand 
 move-in-one-fell-swoop is likely to be fraught with problems.

 AmigaDOS Beer: The company has gone out of business, but their recipe
 has been picked up by some weird German company, so now this beer
 will be an import.  This beer never really sold very well because the
 original manufacturer didn't understand marketing. Like Unix Beer,
 AmigaDOS Beer fans are an extremely loyal and loud group. It
 originally came in a 16-oz. can, but now comes in 32-oz.  cans too.
 When this can was originally introduced, it appeared flashy and
 colorful, but the design hasn't changed much over the years, so it
 appears dated now.  Critics of this beer claim that it is only meant
 for watching TV anyway.
