or more likely, a different username/password for each different
*sql program.  i think debconf could be tricked into using one
template for prompting the user and feeding the answer into
another one. however, as time goes on i'm thinking that this could
be better done with a debhelper like application, which would be
better for all the postinst/etc stuff anyway.
