Bug#218597: should display a notice when changing the debconf priority level

Package: main-menu
Severity: wishlist
Tags: d-i

Several times I have seen confusing behavior when main-menu lowers or
raises the debconf priority level. While in general the automatic
priority changing works, I think it needs a notice to make clear what's
going on.

For example, I was doing an install at priotiry high and not paying much
attention to the first part of it, and something died. I was dropped
into main-menu with partconf as the selected menu item. What wasn't
clear is what had went wrong (turns out partconf was exiting with code

It can also be confusing when things start to go right again, and
main-menu whisks you away to high priority land.

I think it should display an error when something fails and it lowers
the priority, and should display a note before jumping to a higher
