Bug#514305: smarty: Please sync the install path with Ubuntu

Hi Raphaël,

I agree that given that Ubuntu has made this rather poor decision, we're only 
left with this inelegant way forward to unify the packages again. Obviously we 
cannot have this changed for Squeeze anymore, so it'll have to be postponed 
for a bit.

/usr/share is the domain of the packaging system. So if there's anything in 
libs/plugins, that is installed by another package and we should rather not be 
moving that around in preinst. Those packages should be updated instead, no? 
You indicate this already for smarty-gettext and smarty-validate.
