Sorting debconf templates statistics by priority

Quoting Mert Dirik (mertdirik@gmail.com):

Interesting idea, yes. It needs some processing of the maintainer
scripts which might not be trivial.

Basically grepping for the template name would qui easily bring the
priority that's used (something like "look at the word between
db_input and the template name"). I however suspect there might be
corner cases that would complicate this.

It brings me another idea, indeed: check if there are
templates.....that aren't used anymore in a package. I'm not sure
whether this test already exists in lintian, or not.
