Bug#32877: dpkg: Please!!
Followup-For: Bug #32877
I agree emphathically!!
It would be great if you can merge changes in configfiles on update.
(just like 'cvs update')
And if dpkg doesn't currently save unmolested config files somewhere,
just create a copy of every config file in /var/lib/dpkg/config/<path>
when packages are installed. (perhaps compressed)
The extra diskspace would be worth it. Or make it optional.
