do something besides modifying configuration settings. Hmm, perhaps with
a good backend debconf could modify the overrides directly, that would be
kind of sweet.

Already is in CVS. As soon as potato is released I'll unleash dpkg 1.7.0
with this and some other new features. In the meantime I'm already running
it on a couple of my machines and it works very well there.
