That gives me the following idea:
In case /usr/lib/iceape/chrome is a real directory, move all files
therein to /usr/share/iceape/chrome, and replace the directory by a
symlink (either in pre- or postinst).

On the other hand, I ask myself if this bug is really RC - it only
happens if a package containing that directory has been installed

BTW, these packages currently still contain /usr/lib/iceape/chrome in
usr/lib/iceape/chrome                                       web/iceape-browser
usr/lib/iceape/chrome/checky                                web/mozilla-checky
usr/lib/iceape/chrome/imagezoom.jar                         web/mozilla-imagezoom
usr/lib/iceape/chrome/mozgest.jar                           web/mozilla-mozgest
usr/lib/iceape/chrome/stumbleupon.jar                       web/mozilla-stumbleupon

I think we should file RC-bugs against all but the first to move their
file out.
