This is an interesting idea, but it assumes conffiles can have comments in
them, and it smells like a hack to me.

I think it'd be much better if the version info was put in the
DEBIAN/conffiles file. So it would have something like:

/etc/pdmenurc 1.0.0

This might be a problem if there were conffilenames with spaces in them,
