bug #561324: asking questions in postinst


I'm trying to solve bug #561324 which uses it's own binary in the config

It uses it's own binary to get some information (tunnel id) which uses
login+password to retrieve, it really needs this to compile a good
config script (if you have more than 1 tunnel).

My idea on solving this is to move the complete config script to
postinst and ask all the question there.
I read everywhere that this is not the preferred way to go but I can't
discover if it is prohibited by the policy.

Is it prohibited by the policy to ask questions in the postinst-script?

Does somebody know a better way of solving this?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
