We shouldn't bother with all of that jazz.  If we're going to do it, provide
a single spec file to create a relocatable RPM.  This could be installed in
either /usr/doc, for FSSTND systems, or /usr/share/doc for FHS systems.  Not
a big deal.  Debian packages could probably be created from those, I don't
know anything about dpkg, nobody talks about it on any lists that I can
find.  As always, just my $0.02
