does /var/games have to be deleted on purge? (if it's empty..)


while testing the archive with piuparts I found a failure reported by 
piuparts, that after purge /var/games existed on the system while it wasnt 
there before installing+purging the package. 

See http://piuparts.debian.org/squeeze/fail/slashem-common_0.0.7E7F3-1.3.log 
(at the end..)

http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html#VARGAMESVARIABLEGAMEDATA says 
that /var/games is an optional directory, which must be present if the 
corresponding subsystem (here: a game) is present. 

Thus I would conclude that it has to be removed on purge if there are no other 
games installed. Right? Or should I make piuparts ignore the /var/games 
directory if present after purge?


is definitly buggy, as it not only leaves /var/games on the system but 
also /var/games/armagetronad :-)
