	Umm, who says it is going to be used mostly on debconfized
 packages? I ma planning on using it on 3 of my packages, and they
 have not yet been debconfized.  Indeed, the script was motivated by
 emacs lisp packages, not debconf ones, though it would work equally
 well for those.

 When I left the meeting, I had the definite impression that I had
 found the same game as with the seals: management reducing criteria
 and accepting more and more errors that weren't designed into the
 device, while the engineers are screaming from below, "HELP!" and
 "This is a RED ALERT!" Richard P. Feynman, about NASA, _What Do You
