Debconf does no such thing; if someone wants a config script that is a
compiled binary, that will work. Indeed, I even have about 4 merged bugs
open on debconf because apt-extracttemplates drops the files into /tmp
by default by default, and people mount the blasted thing no-exec (not
really debconf's bugs, but whatever).
