Important changes should be announced to user during installation/upgrade.
Some of the packages complying with this tradition are: ssh, inn2.
Ssh doing it with debconf. Inn2 first did it echoing text from
{pre,post}inst scripts and waiting for user interaction, but now it also
uses a debconf. Big positive is ability to easy localization of debconf
templates. Those templates are available to translation
at http://ddtp.debian.org.
