Bug#386669: confusing use of ucf

Package: apache
Version: 1.3.34-4
Severity: normal

If I Include httpd.conf.local from httpd.conf and set ServerName in
the .local file, debconf will correctly preseed dpkg-reconfigure,
and furthermore, it also writes the change to .local, which is nice.

However, then ucf is run asking me whether to install the new
version of httpd.conf.local. I think that's mighty confusing. ucf is
intended to be used for package-provided files, not just any
configuration file, I think.
