I'd rather you file bugs on the other packages which call apacheconfig
interactively in postinst - I'm thinking of adding a 'just add this
module, commented out, changing nothing else' option to apacheconfig. 
Either that or giving in and applying debconf to such a silly little

I really strongly disapprove of running apacheconfig; it can have
startling changes on the behavior of an already configured server.

See http://bugs.debian.org/79460 for more of my thoughts on this
