doesnt it consume considerable CPU? 

in my oppinion this should run on a dedicated machine, e.g. a

we would need it integrated in debconf, for pre-seeding at
install/config time. this approach does not work well with this
and fails with reconfigure. it would be better to auto-generate
the config files and use the existing ones as templates and
extend them as needed.

this is described in man 7 debconf-devel, section "Config file
handling". for a way to do this cleanly and neatly check out the
