Yep, User-Debconf, i think i suggested something like that sometime.
Got quite a bunch of flames for doing so ;)

I suggested three debconf "parts" by then:
Debconf as it is used right now for basic package installation
Debconf for optional use by the admin (think of linuxconf)
Debconf for use by the regular users.

Actually i like the idea of providing "postinst" and "postrm" scripts
for the users, too. I could have used this for galeon, although the
wrapper was there anyway and the cleaner solution.
