Now there ya go... A suggestion: If the postinst has chosen "safe values" but has an interactive postinst, it would be nice if it told dpkg/apt/whatever (SOME PROGRAM) that it could serve to be reconfigured so the user can later get a list of packages which have pending configuration and pick which ones to configure now... -- Show me the code or get out of my way.
