For extras.u.c ship crashdb.conf to opt/<app>/etc/apport/crashdb.conf.d/<app>-crashdb.conf

quickly (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

As we're not allowed to ship to /usr, we should (for extras.u.c apps) ship crashdb.conf to opt/<app>/etc/apport/crashdb.conf.d/<app>-crashdb.conf

I believe this is actually a quickly bug, not python-distutils-extra.

Quickly generates the crashdb file, and then fails to ensure it is moved to the proper place when building an ARB-style package.

Moreover, the debian/rules patch that is going around to fix this issue would appear to tack on to the end of what Quickly specifically generates for debian/rules when building an extras.u.c style package.

no longer affects: python-distutils-extra

Please note that with current apport you don't need to ship a crashdb.conf snippet any more, you can directly define the crash db in the package hook. Package hooks in /opt work now.
