They are still on my ToDo list. I previously sent an email containing the
details of how I think we should proceed, but need to test all the upgrade
paths (which is why I haven't got to it yet) just to make sure I didn't miss
The shared debconf prompt idea was already discussed and discarded in one of
the d-devel threads before the change was made. Which is what Thorsten's
idea was all about.
Will later forward my email to the ML you've setup so that others can help
test the changes.
