 So, in your opinion, is packaging this kind of applications for Debian
 without paying attention to this problem an acceptable solution?  By
 best option until now is not even try to enable the application and
 leave that to the administrator, with some examples in the appropiate
 place.  This leaves the administrator with a new database, some tables
 possibly, a script to recreate the schema if necessary, some file where
 a database name (and possibly a user but no password) is stored and
 some files that aren't "used" by anything on the system.  Does that
 sound ok?
