Yes. However, Apache has a notable number of configuration files (not
conffiles), namely symlinks from, e.g. mods-enabled to mods-available,
resulting in the working configuration users would like to have.

These are being lost if and only if people use --purge during an upgrade
as for today, and perhaps for the release unless I use either
alternative highlighted initially.
