Well, this is true for each and every file installed by a Debian
package. I don't see why we should mention that in this particular
README file.

See the documentation of dpkg-statoverride(8) for a tool that might help
you achieve what you're trying to do. However, note that you are
entirely on your own regarding that kind of setup including maintaining
it whenever any of the affected packages change.

Anyway, why did you switch from nagios:nagios to icinga:icinga in the
first place?
