To provide system-wide shell script usually in Linux system you may use two 
ways. The first one is to create a file into /etc (as your package does it). 
The second one is to create a file into /usr/local/smth. In both ways it's all 
right that these files are not under package manager control.

So I'll remove this package. And nano* package too.
Sincerely yours, E.Alekseev
