  Debconf support is now required?  I'm flabbergasted.  Could you
 please point me to this section of our policy?  I certainly cannot
 find it.

  An existing code example from the top of my head would be the current
 xserver-xfree86 package's config and postinst scripts.  Another package
 which does much of the same thing, albeit in quite a different manner,
 is proftpd.  I'm sure there's many more.

  Would you and Andreas seriously consider modifying the Exim packages
 to the layout I suggested in my former post?  If so, I would be happy
 to spend some time developing a patch for this purpose.
