This is only one significant thing that I hope can be solved with the work 
starting on the layered "dcontrol" configuration handling system considering 
to use Config4GNU[1] concepts under the hood (frontends).

Hopfully not too many simplifying assumptions will be needed in order to come 
up and identify a nice solution.

In this realm of things there seem to be a couple of ideas involved that would 
need to be covered:

 Shared foundation for Config Tools/Frontends
 Config File Upgrades
 Preconfigureing Packages 
 Debconf vs. dcontrol/CFG relationship
