If /etc/init.d/devpts.sh is shipped in the .deb, it *MUST* be a conffile. If
it is not shipped in the deb, then it *MUST* be a configuration file, and user
edits to it must be preserved with some maintainer-provided way.
If the maintainer of libc6 says you shouldn't edit that file, then the
maintainer is wrong.
