I'm not sure: If a config file is in package nis, it cannot
be in package nis-local, too without having the a conflict,

But nis is only an example - I have ten or twenty packages
with some local configuration (samba, apache, ...).  It's
not an option to have all those packages in local variants.

That's why I asked about more "intelligent" way of config
file handling, like cfengine in postinst.  Nobody tried
