Is that a hypothesis or have you verified it? Between which versions?
My understanding is that that's correct, but only for uninstall/install of
releases from testing->sid (and sid->latest). It's not the case for
lenny->squeeze because lisp-config.lisp is not a conffile in lenny, and thus
will be removed even with a plain (non-purge) pkg removal.

The conflict might only occur when the stale lisp-config.lisp is a conffile,
and by definition we're not allowed to wipe conffiles. I believe that there's
user prompting only upon a conflict between local changes and the new conffile
(ie. no prompting when an unmodified old conffile is replaced by an updated

So you prefer the release and I do the sponsorship? Why would you update
cl-asdf? (it's has no rc bugs)
