 I guess it would be a good idea to put it in the po-debconf package, if
it has been found useful (not tested yet, nothing to test for me there ,).
You need po-debconf to do that packages anyway and I guess that script
isn't that huge, is it?

 It's well documented in the po-debconf(7) manual page, section:
CONVERTING YOUR PACKAGE TO THIS SYSTEM

 At least I found it a good guide.  I must say the documentation is
quite straight forward in that respect.

 Have fun,
