	AAArrrgh. I hate following up to myself. I am going to go away
 from my machine and do something else. Like see LOTR again.

	On further inspection, one does not need special case code in
 the script: you just need to ship the old md5sum file in your package
 (no harm in making the md5sum file a part of your package).  In that
 case, the conffile handling is done right.
