If you shell out, edit /etc/foo.conf to merge the updated from
foo.conf.dpkg-new (or in any other way), then return to the conffile
menu, then select 'N', your changes will be preserved.

Policy explicitly says that using the conffile mechanism is
inappropriate for this kind of configuration file. Report a bug. Given
that we have UCF, there's really no excuse for this any more.
