In python-mpd-doc and python-dbus-doc, I installed the real documentation
files in /u/s/d/python-*-doc, but placed symlinks to them in both
/u/s/d/python-* and /u/s/d/python3-*. Perhaps that's a reasonable way
to achieve the spirit of the Policy ยง12.3 recommendation while not
privileging one of Python 2, Python 3, PyPy, etc. over the others?
