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...
