Not knowing the packaging system (and of course distros do their own
thing), but is it possible to flag certain areas - artwork being an
obvious example - as "do not remove when upgrading"?

That's annoyed me on many an occasion with some programs, where you had
all these useful little "extras" like clip-art, and then an upgrade
removed the old lot and replaced it with something new and different.

It'd be nice to be able to include a bunch of useful bits with each
version and change them. Then people who've got them would still have
them but there'd be a bit of the "what wonderful new things will turn up
THIS time?". And if the location is documented then people could copy
and share them if they so desire.
