Nothing funky happened to Sorcery, it just became more strict. There were
always install-info errors (you get them with test sorcery too), but now they
are fatal if they cause POST_REMOVE (or PRE_REMOVE) to fail.
Like I said before, consider this an incentive to finally fix these long
standing bugs. The candidates are easy to find, the fix pretty simple (just
remember to add a repair file) and Vlad was already working on one for tar,
so you should also have a reference soon.
