I am afraid that I do not feel that writing a parser for XF86Config
files for debconf's purposes is high enough on my priority list that I
am likely to tackle it in time for the woody+1 release.  There is simply
too much else to be done with XFree86.

That said, I certainly wouldn't reject patch submissions out of hand.

Anyone interested in this project can likely start with
xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/common/xf86Config.c for implementation
hints.
