The easiest way to go about this would be to have _update-info-dir
install a perpetual postinstall script that does the very same things it
does now. I'm not even sure it's worth the trouble to try to exit early
if there's nothing to do.

Yes, it seems odd to hardcode things that way.

There aren't any stratified scripts for pre-remove, so a lot of the
things that you might wish for don't work anyway. So again it would
need to be fixed without getting a trigger or setup would need to be
made a lot smarter than it is today.

So just do it unconditionally; I was planning to change _update-info-dir
accordingly, but haven't found the time yet. I do the same with mandb
locally already and I haven't looked back.
