Could you avoid the debconf question and use a similar mechanism to what
the current XFree packages do: generate the file from conf.d, unless its
md5sum has changed from the generated version. That way you don't need
to have a debconf question, and when someone edits their exim4.conf
file, exim Does The Right Thing and doesn't scribble all over it.
(Who doesn't like debconf being used when not completely necessary.)
