dpkg-divert --local --divert /usr/share/xml/shibboleth/catalog.xml.debian \

and then copy catalog.xml.debian to catalog.xml and edit appropriately.
If there are any changes to the listings during upgrades, those will have
to be manually merged, so it's not ideal.  But it's possible.

We could alternatively make it a configuration file, but I'm not sure if
it's worth the effort.
