Perhaps some of the questions are at a different priority than they used
to be.  Not sure.

Looking at the postinst script, those questions are only asked when the
package is installed for the first time or when upgrading from a really
old version. Otherwise it's up to the admin to edit xorg.conf.

An "apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg" _may_ work, I did not
You can always make it "the first time" like this:
1. backup xorg.conf just to be safe
2. dpkg --purge xserver-xorg --force-depends
3. apt-get install xserver-xorg

The force-depends is so you won't have to remove every package
that depends on  xserver-xorg.  That just takes a lot of extra time.
