Ok thanks for advice, It's already in the NEW queue.

I posted here on purpose: this a remake of a native debian package,
and a long term goal - I mean : since 1998[1] - 
was to have some of it functionality moved in dpkg itself.

Here is a more detailed proposal that only pickup the 
lowest hanging fruit, that would be completely optional
and left to each packager choice:


TL;DR: move some of postrm scripts "rm -f" lines 
in machine-readable files than can also be re-used by "dpkg -S"
