Sorry, but I can not agree with you. What is packaging for then ? I thought it
is to make life easier....

When installing some apache module requires LoadModule directive and some
reasonable default settings, which will work in most cases - why not to put 
them into conffile in postinst script ? Look at jserv  package - postinst adds
(commented out) line "LoadModule ...mod_jserv.so" and <IfModule mod_jserv.c>
</IfModule> section. What is wrong with it ? I think nothing.
