I think this should be mandatory for all configuration (postinst) scripts
that require user interaction. Things like that have been mentioned more
then once on the list, and I dont know what the new apt interface does
with configuration scripts.  But anyhow, the user should have a
possibility to look at packages which require configuration and be 
able to to reconfigure any time.

If it is possible to find out if the postinst scripts need interaction,
we could as well add them automatically.
