Very well put. Hopfully one day there will be tools that maintainers can rely 
on to handle config files without getting in the way of users nor having them  
do all the basic update chores by hand or chance.

I.e. with a well maintainable tool that can check/validate and set arbitrary 
config settings I guess there might allready be more fully debconfized config 
files in debian, and idealy without any "## debconf -do not modify" areas.

Here is where the ideas from Config4GNU[1] and DControl[2], even though their 
intention came and include the GUI level, seem more helpful than other config
