Bug#542627: mediatomb-common: Upgrading overwrites modified userfiles in /usr/share/mediatomb/js/

Package: mediatomb-common
Version: 0.12.0~svn2018-3
Severity: important

When upgrading, files like "import.js" and "playlist.js" in /usr/share/mediatomb/js/ are overwritten
by the maintainer's version.

However, these files enable users to filter files with respect to inclusion in, or exclusion from, MediaTomb,
as well as setting its "display name".

Given, for instance, an entry like "Movies/War Movies/Where Eagles Dare (1968)/Where Eagles Dare.avi"
one could override the default, 'directory browsing'-like display name the default "import.js" generates with 
something like "War Movies/1968 - Where Eagles Dare", or anything else.

Which makes overwriting these files highly undesirable, should one have applied changes to them (as I have
obviously done, hence the bugreport).
