Because the data is not quite static. Any config-script and perhaps the
install program may choose it's own sequence of questions. And the
installer may ask variable questions. ( In the menu for example).
So I think there should be the internal database in mDebConf. An the conf
scripts can say the Frontend that they want to have answered some
question. Therefore the frontend can look in some database, if it wants.
