Thanks for pointing this out, I hadn't noticed it (this is the sort of thing
DWN should be mentioning!) but it does seem to be uber-cool.  If all Debian
packages got around to using Debconf for all their config, this would be the
absolute bestest thing possible.

All that would be needed extra is a way to get all possible questions from a
list of packages and answer them without doing anything to the running
system.  I guess fiddling with debconf.conf and apt-get would probably solve
it, or something in apt-utils...
