Hmm, first it is suggested that this is done in base-files because it
is easier to fork, but then a procedure is described in which no fork
is even necessary, except for a "bootstrap".

What about just setting VENDOR in debian/rules and create postinst using sed?
Ubuntu would just need to modify a single line in debian/rules (which would
not be a big problem since base-files is already forked) and no special
"bootstrap" would be needed.

I'd like to keep it as simple as possible.
