Well then I don't have any real objections. Aside from the web servers,
and possibly document indexing systems like dhelp and so on, I suppose
the number of programs that hard code /usr/doc is pretty rare. And a
sizable chunk of them are programs that only access their _own_ docs in
/usr/doc, and it doesn't matter if we miss or don't get to such
programs, because it won't cause any upgrade problems if they are only
fixed later. So full steam ahead..
