Using the SSL snakeoil certificate

Following up to myself with a proper subject line.

In bug #376146, Martin Pitt wrote:

 In an effort to clean up the SSL certificate mess on Ubuntu servers, we
 recently converted all our supported Server packages to make use of
 the ssl-cert package instead of creating a package-specific
 self-signed SSL certificate. This allows admins to easily replace the
 certificate with a 'real' one without touching dozens of configuration
 files, and also provides a consistent setup out of the box.

Is this is a good idea for Debian? I think it is but it doesn't make sense to switch dovecot over unless all the other ssl-cert using packages also do it. Is this possible in the etch timeframe?
