I remember having tried to use dpkg-maintscript-helper in the past to
fix this issue but it wasn't quite up for the specific task (I don't
have the details in my head, but I remember that has to do something
with the fact that the original files were in roundcube package while
the new ones were in roundcube-core).

Since roundcube package is already a metapackage in squeeze, I will just
drop the mangling logic.
Instrument your programs.  Measure before making "efficiency" changes.
