I considered this, but judged that the cost of writing a parser for the old
format that would be used only once -- when people would be quizzed by
debconf anyway -- exceeded the benefit.

If someone want to write some code that will parse the old /etc/X11/Xserver
file and load up the debconf database with values from it, and submit a
patch to xserver-common.config as a wishlist bug, please feel free.  I'll
give it serious consideration (especially if it's well written, matches my
shell scripting style, and has been tested).
