Package: dpkg
Severity: wishlist

In the rpm world, there is a way to define in the list of files, files
that are not installed by the package, but by the maintainer scripts (or
later created by the application itself).

It would be nice to have that kind of functionality as it allows the user
to immediately know the pkg that owns the file (without looking at the
maintainer scripts) and also maybe for maintainer so they don't need to
manually rm the file in postrm scripts.

Kind regards,

Laurent Bigonville
