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

file, exim Does The Right Thing and doesn't scribble all over it.

That sounds like a really good idea. I believe (don't quote me!) that the XFree86 packages use ucf for this.
