Yes, you can drop a script into /usr/lib/base-config/, and have it
fiddle around with debconf however you like. It'll be run as part of
base-config. See the base-config man page for details. The script could,
FE, shove a bunch of defaults into the debconf db.
Or you could make your package edit /etc/debconf.conf (violating policy,
I suppose, as it is a conffile) and make it use the new DbDriver. Of
course you have to get the DbDriver written first.
