Bug#397785: [debconf] Should warn if postinst doesn't understand argument "reconfigure"
| the right thing would be to pass $1 = "reconfigure", but doing so
| without breaking all the postinsts that use debconf is difficult. The
| migration plan away from this hack is to encourage people to write
| postinsts that accept "reconfigure", and once they all do, begin
| passing that variable.
To aid in that goal, it would be nice if lintian complained if
reconfigure is not accepted.
