That's outside the scope of dpkg's installation mechanisms. Better idea
would be to integrate this as the target of some networked configuration
Given some mechanism to configure multiple machines (be it some improved
form of linuxconf, cfengine, or whatever), the configuration database
to be used by dpkg installation scripts could be given some kind of
"not installed yet" placeholder name.
