	Why is the developer looking into policy, and not the
 documentation of the packaging system? Policy is not documentation
 for dpkg/katie/dinstall.

	And having it in the proper place, and not cluttering up
 policy, is even better.

Wings of OS/400: The airline has bought ancient DC-3s, arguably the
best and safest planes that ever flew, and painted "747" on their
tails to make them look as if they are fast. The flight attendants, of
course, attend to your every need, though the drinks cost $15 a
pop. Stupid questions cost $230 per hour, unless you have SupportLine,
which requires a first class ticket and membership in the frequent
flyer club. Then they cost $500, but your accounting department can
call it overhead.
