Bug#342077: exim4-config: Please consider prompting for config type at high priority

Package: exim4-config
Version: 4.52-2
Severity: wishlist

(CC'ing -boot as this is strongly installer-related given that exim4 is
installed on all systems by default)

I already imagined suggesting this for sarge but it was then a bit late.

The currentl dc_eximconfig_configtype question is asked at critical
priority. However, it has a sane default ("Local delivery only"), so
skipping the question and using the default answer leads to a perfectly
working system.

So, why not lowering the question priority a little and ask it at high
priority: it will still be asked on default installs and this will allow
people who want to skip it in very straight installs to have one less
question at critical priority.
