In other words: I would have to duplicate the code of /usr/sbin/get-sub-users
in the config script?
While this is no real problem it smells some kind of ugly to me. Is there
any hard fact that prevents debconf from using some utilities which are
contained in the package itself? If not I would think about filing a
wishlist bug but I just want to make sure this at first because I'm not
really good in dpkg/debconf internals.
