Correct way to move /etc config files

Hi there!

This mail originates from the discussion at [1]: simply, I need to move
an /etc file (/etc/frameworkd.conf) from one package (fso-frameworkd) to
another one (fso-config-gta02).

However, I don't really know the best way to manage this situation and I
cannot find any reference on the Debian Developer's Reference [2] nor on
the Debian Policy [3] nor the Debian wiki [4].

What I've implemented until now is [5]:
> +++ b/debian/control
> +Package: fso-config-gta02
> +Architecture: all
> +Depends: ${shlibs:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}, fso-frameworkd (>= 0.2.0-git20080909-7)
> +Conflicts: fso-frameworkd (<< 0.2.0-git20080909-6)

fso-frameworkd 0.2.0-git-20080909-6 still contains /etc/frameworkd.conf,
while 0.2.0-git-20080909-7 doesn't.  Please someone correct me ;-)

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
