In order to minimize the modifications to apply to approx package, I've 
created the libconfig-model-approx package, so now there's no need to ship 
approx.conf configuration model in approx package.

The patch for approx is much simpler (See attachment):
* a call to config-edit in postinst script
* a new dependency on libconfig-model-approx-perl

Now what's next? 

Can I submit a bug to approx package to push this idea further? 

Eric, what do you think ?

All the best
