The single file configuration template is generated on package build
time from the same directory that ends up as the source for the
multiple-file configuration. That generation process can be repeated
on demand on the target system (update-exim4.conf.template).
The actual config file is being generated on he target system at run
time either from the single file configuration template or the
multiple-file configuration, depending on the debconf setting.
So I'd say they're pretty much equivalent.

That tool is already there.
