better package management

I believe these are files that are created during/after installation
that are not actually part of the package. So far as I know, there is no
package manager that can track files that are created after a package
has been installed on the system, and this is generally undesirable.
Removing such files using the package manager would be similar to
removing /var/www after Apache is removed. You would lose all your
website documents even if migrating to nginx for example. Hope this
helps explain the situation.
