Asking Questions upon package removal

	I'm packaging up a backup application that creates a whole lot
of data file somewhere in /usr/share. Now if you delete these files then
your backup tapes become really painful to restore.

	So if someone does a --purge I want to query the user to check
they really want to do this. Can I use debconf to do this in the preinst
scripts? Or is there a better way todo this sort of thing or should I
just assume the user isn't stupid?
