I still have a few more changes to upload, but I'm not at home right 
now, I'm in Athens to watch the Olympics and I can't use CVS because 
of the restrictive firewall here. I'll have to login elsewhere to do 
it :-)

Well I don't know about "official" though it seems like a nice 
candidate to do localization work. The plan is to have it call from 
base-config, and I'll write the hook scripts once I find some time to 
do it :-)

Well, the debconf preseeding takes place regardless of the package 
being installed. When the package _does_ get installed however, it 
reads the debconf values and depending on the priority of debconf 
questions, prompts the user for changes or just uses the values. With 
priority set to high, it would go on automatic.
Debconf is really a nice system :-)
