Bug#236468: apt: --reinstall should allow to renew configuration files

* Martin Michlmayr 

| BTW, this may be a stupid question, but is there a way to tell apt to
| pass some options to dpkg?   I needed this the other day and couldn't
| easily find it.

apt-get -o "DPkg::options=--force-overwrite" install foo

should work.
