Do you mean that debian/control would have to be parsed on each
invocation of dh_install, roughly once per file installed?

I considered that but it won't work. dh_installdocs installs to
/usr/share/doc/package and this isn't the directory we want to install
to (libfoo-java-doc installs the javadoc for libfoo-java in
/usr/share/doc/libfoo-java, and not /usr/share/doc/libfoo-java-doc).
