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.
