if the templates are included at build-time by a debhelper-style script,
there's no need for a runtime dependency for these templates.

i think Pre-depends should be avoided at any possible cost.  this
unfortunately means that the REGISTER suggestion won't reliably work,
which is really too bad because that would have been the most graceful

over the past week i've been in contact with joeyh about the
feasability of doing this with a debhelper-style script, and think
i have the workings of a primitive version hashed out with him.
