debconf-question-asking cgi script


i thought you might be the best people to ask this.

in light of there being very little admin GUIs for any linux distro,
i thought i would finally try writing one.

the shortest path from A to B is via the debconf database.

therefore, would you mind advising me: what command-line tools are there
(no - i will not write in perl) to dump a debconf template for a
particular item?

i don't mind using debconf-get-selections but i really need the list
of options/answers for e.g. a drop-down list and i need the descriptive
text etc. etc.

or, when i get to it, will it be quite obvious?
