    I personaly prefer to use Python rather than Perl.
    However, there is a drawback in using a python-debconf:
    as long as python is not essential, you will force people
    to install python in order to be able to install other
    packages (since there will be a dependency on python-debconf).

    Currently, the advantage of using the shell or the perl
    interfaçe to debconf is that perl-base is essential, so
    it will necessarily be installed on your system.

    I think that this can be discussed though.
