codecs.conf is not really a config file, at least not one that users
will commonly edit.
mplayer.conf is a generated file, I already tried putting it into
conffiles in the past, but then dpkg-deb complains:
dpkg-deb: conffile `/etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf' does not appear in
dh_builddeb: command returned error code
Do you know a good solution for this?
