Why don't we collect the possible list of command that would be usefull on
package configuration?
Me and other DD were going to build package collecting this types of commands.
Most probably we will call it confhelper.

just to begin:

- mysql db setup
- pgsql db setup
- user existance
- group existance
- command existence
- exim trust user
- get apache configuration
