I have no problem in reading it.

Yes, but this is not fine for users who have lots of Debian machines
or users who don't have a root access and can't change it.

It would be fine if this could be controled via an environment variable,
though. For instance, one directory for resources set by the author of
the program and one directory for resources set by the package maintener.
If I've understood correctly, the user can still use the XFILESEARCHPATH
environment variable to choose what he wants.
