In my opinion no: Essentially debathena diverts configfiles which I 
consider a way of "messing programmatically with configfiles".

For examples of real-world problems, also demonstrating the relevancy of 
this policy, see "Common Issues" section at the bottom of above 
referenced page.

Petter Reinholdtsen [consider it legal] to mess programmatically with 
configfiles as it is done currently, even though it breaks upgrades.
