check out dpkg-vendor for a mechanism to change arbitrary 'things'
(such as branding) within packages. Otherwise metapackages and or
debconf can be used to choose alternative packages or existing
'Branding' is actually spread over quite a few packages so there is no
one place or mechanism to change this. However it's quite a common
problem, so I assume it's relatively cleanly done and already
available in many packages.
