I think there's a lot of value in using dh-foo tooling, as it
standardizes packaging and provides a single, central utility to update
when something needs to be changed.

I do understand the argument about not wanting to diverge too much from
the upstream package though and in the end, that's your decision :)

I've included a patch to make the change I'm proposing. I've tested it
and it works as intended. Hopefully, it will provide you with the info
you requested. FWIW, the install tree looks like this:

./usr/share/nvim/site/pack/dist-bundle/start/icinga2 ->
./usr/share/vim/vimfiles/pack/dist-bundle/start/icinga2 ->

Those changes can certainly be made "by hand" too, but IMO it's more
manual work and could lead to more work in the future if the vim best
practices change again.

Cheers, and thanks for maintaining icinga2 in Debian.
