Nope. Because that is not how it works or has ever worked. Your

Hate to keep beating this. But my response is:
Just because it's not how it's ever worked doesn't mean it's right. Can
you give me reasoning as to *why* it works like that? Any docs you can
point me to on this?
1. On original install: debconf asks whether you want the services started.
2. On updates: if service is running,
service is stopped, updates are performed,
and service is restarted (i.e. current behavior)
debconf asks whether you want the services
started (i.e. treat as original install)
3. On remove/purge: service is stopped before removing
Is this not logical? Is there a reason that it doesn't work this way?
