I see no reason why a package which is freshly installed (that is, has
_no_ config files on the system) should clear the answers beforehand.
So, if you prefill debconf, it should just work.
The action sequence is something like:
- read in old values, if the config file exists. put those into
- ask questions using debconf
- write config file.
