The reason is that dpkg assosiates the file as a conffile with the
debian-edu-config package when it is installed, and remove it on
removal as it is supposed to.  I'm not sure how we should change the
package to avoid this.

Installing symlinks using cfengine is an option.  Detecting the
conflicts at install time and refuse to install if this happen is
another.  Ideas?
