The only reason there are cached scripts is that people are complaining 
that console-setup is slow at boot.  The cached scripts contain the 
mininum configuration sufficient to configure the console.  If we run 
setupcon, we don't need cached scripts.

However, I don't think it is appropriate to do a NMU with such changes.  
Instead you should make a regular upload of the package.  I don't know 
whether you have commit rights in the repository of Debian installer 
(where the sources of console-setup are), or not, but in any case I 
think you can obtain such rights in no time.
