Re: cdebconf - enhancements

Hi folks

Anyone following the commit messages should have seen my commits to a
branch of cdebconf.

This version adds the following features:
- It is possible to specify the configfile and much more on the command
 line, this makes tests much easier.
- It uses unix sockets for backend communication. This is needed for
 the next feature.
- It implements X_TERMINAL. It makes it possible to use non-debconf
 programs on any frontend, even if it is not possible to access
 stdin/stdout. The implementation uses one feature of unix sockets:
 file descriptor passing, this makes the implementation easy but
 unusable from shell code.
Will this allow the support for gui front-end?
