Note, for others following this bug, that this patch just moves the
existing information and doesn't include the information from
update-mime(8) into Policy, which means that one still has to read that
man page to find out the formatting of the entry in the
/usr/lib/mime/packages directory.  (Which should really be /usr/share, but
that's another problem, since /usr/share/mime/packages is apparently being
used by something else.)  If people believe more of the information from
update-mime(8) should be included in Policy, now's the time to speak
