And use the defaults so enter will leave it as is on upgrade of the package. 
This in the init.d script would be nice:

# Uncomment next line to disable the sshd daemon

or something like that.  Of course, the postinst can find the default with
grep and change it with sed and the comment will let the user change it
without problems.
