That's cool, but doesn't it break policy? (only conffile onwer
may modify conffiles)
That's not clear to me.

Point 3: Why not in experimental? fitting perfectly with the idea of

Putting it in an external repository breaks the 100%-Debian idea.

I'll send some notes I wrote a couple of days ago on list.
