Hm, might work. But it's hard to know where this value might have came

  - cdebconf default
  - command-line override via "expert" boot or similar
  - some preloaded cdebconf database of some sort

I don't know how prebaseconfig can get at anything except the current
priority with any kind of accuracy.
