I brought the issue of that question's overly high DEBCONF_PRIORITY a
long time ago. I suggested that at critical, local delivery only should
automatically be chosen. If a person who installs at critical wants
something fancier than local delivery, they should install at a lower
priority or run a dpkg-reconfigure later.
The bug was usertagged as pending-maintainer-discussion in January 2006.
