Hi Simon,

I'm not yet sure what's the culprit, but after applying your patch
(without the changelog) to the current HEAD of our packging git repo,
the installation of zsh-common always aborts as follows:

Preparing to unpack zsh-common_5.0.7-4_all.deb ...
Unpacking zsh-common (5.0.7-4) over (5.0.7-3+0~20141111001757.238~1.gbp353e05) ...
dpkg: error processing archive zsh-common_5.0.7-4_all.deb (--install):
 unable to open '/usr/share/doc/zsh-common/ChangeLog-3.0.gz.dpkg-new': No such file or directory
Processing triggers for menu (2.1.47) ...

Errors were encountered while processing:

I currently suspect that dpkg-maintscript-helper may be confused
because because /usr/share/doc/zsh is now a directory inside zsh _and_
zsh-common. Will have a close look tomorrow evening. So in case you
have an idea, feel free to reply.

(I also tried to bump zsh-common's Replaces header to zsh <= 5.0.7-3,
but this didn't seem to make a change.)
