	You may not need to do it in preinst, since these files are
 created/updated in the postinst (which is the reason they can't be
 marked as conffiles in the first place).

	If you look at the script I posted, the user is not asked any
 questions if the file on the system is the same file that is
 currently being shipped. In the general case, I think this is good
 enough; if one cares, one can special case the md5sum of the last
 non-conffile one shipped and check that, but I hate special cases.

 If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work,
 the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
