Yes, and if a full package rebuild isn't possible for whatever reason
this file could just be packaged in a separate package that then needs
to be referenced from the main package via dependency.  It looks like
this will need to be done for Perl if Reini doesn't re-surface.

BTW, do we want to keep these files in /etc or move to /var/lib?  Both
Ken and I interpret the LSB/FSH document as recommending /var/lib as the
place to put such things.  We could of course do that later on (there's
other stuff in /etc that would fall under that rule), but since nothing
has been released at the moment I thought I should ask again if a policy
decision has been reached already.
