merging configuration files on update, timeline?

I just saw Ian's mail announcing the triggers support in 
dpkg[0] which I think is a very nice feature I am wondering 
if there are any plans to have the possibility to merge 
configuration files on package updates in lenny?

There are lots of patches for this in the BTS and I looking 
at the needs of users and package tools of other 
distributions I think we are pretty much lagging behind with 
this. This is not meant as a rant if it sounds like...

Just wanted to know, what priority does this feature have 
for you?
