Bug#34589: dpkg: prerm purge call, perhaps

Package: dpkg
Severity: wishlist

I think it might be nice if the prerm script were to be called with a
"purge" argument before the conffiles are removed during the purge
phase of package removal.  I have a use for such a facility.
(This would come immediately before step 5 in section 6.5 of the
Packaging Manual.)
