My reading of the above quoted test, is that Config::Model is *not*
seeking to replace debconf; it is going to _use_ it as other packages do
for interacting with the user. Or, to be more precise, my understanding
is that the package helper is going to prepare debconf questions that
will be shipped in the packages which use that helper.

(But again, I'm of the opinion that it should not ask any question in
the first place; see my former message.)

Let's see wait for the proposer to clarify these doubts :-)
