I'm not sure I understand why; it seems to me that the fix suggested in
my previous message would handle both cases:

if test -t; then
	if ! $apacheconfig "$@"< /dev/tty > /dev/tty; then
	if ! yes '' | $apacheconfig "$@"; then

Of course, using debconf is far more elegant, so if this is really only
a week out, I'll stop distracting you with irrelevant kludges. :)
