I have not! ;-) This is php's fault :-P

See the code [code]:
"doc_dir=/usr/share/doc/".$this->_get_mainpackage(), (aka

[code]: http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-php/pkg-php-tools.git;a=blob;f=lib/perl/Debian/Debhelper/Buildsystem/phppear.pm;h=3924dfaea4d21459154fc102aaef7bfb62cf053b;hb=HEAD

I agree with you both, the docs should go in
/usr/share/doc/<packagename> and not in subdirs. This can be done in
pkg-php-tools by issuing a move after the install (between line 114
