Didn't we have graphical debconf frontends?

Sure. I was just stating that's its actually *possible* to do it, not
that everyone should be happy with it. There's always room for
improvement, e.g. using those above packages when doing dpkg-reconfigure
in case they have been installed since or of course somehow adding them
to the base system. It's just a pity this couldn't be done for woody.
