Bug#598906: Ask if brltty should start at boot after install?

Package: brltty
Version: 4.2-4
Severity: wishlist

When running DI with brltty or while reconfiguring the brltty package with dpkg-reconfigure, what if one could be asked if it should start on boot or not?
For example, if one only needs it for installing Debian on a machine, and not require it to run durring use of the machine, I see it usefull to have the posibillity to disable brltty durring the package configuration.
