dpkg-diverting conffiles is the way to hit scary code paths that
apparently don't work properly, so I certainly don't recommend that
approach. Just edit the conffiles directly.

(The awkwardness I meant was what Sebastian referred to: you have to
edit a number of files to make a policy change, not all of which may
necessarily even be installed yet.)
