But he removed the file created by the debconf script in /etc/ssh,
which IMHO counts as a change of local configuration by the
administrator under 11.7.3 of policy 188.8.131.52. As such, the upgrade
script must respect this change. I believe it would be reasonable to
open a serious bug against ssh for not doing so. See the thread about abusing debconf recently.
I don't see why it was reasonable to bring up a problem with a single package here.
