 Alright, so alternatives symlinks arguably aren't owned by a single
 package, but cave owner could at least print to stderr:

 {{{
 warning: /usr/bin/haddock is not owned by any package
 However, it appears to be an alternatives symlink - try using $BLAH to
 find out more
 }}}

 rather than the current output (nothing), which makes you think it's some
 rogue non-paludis install!
