Re: dpkg urgent wishlist : Delayed Configuration override

	I have not yet completed my analysis of package ordering for
 Deity, but speaking from the view point of my working prototype
 pkg-order, it is trivial to introduce a "configure now" flag into the
 package ordering mechanism there, and involves less change than the
 post unpack proposal from Jason.

	I have no firm idea whether this would continue to be this
 easy for the Deity implementation (which is, after all, going to be a
 totally different implementation in a totally different language).

	I do not think we need implement this flag for dependency
 issues, but down time requirements may well need a "configure now"
 flag  (watchdog?).

	Oh, I'd be grateful for any input people have about package
 ordering issues. (thanks, Christoph, for bringing this up).
