Sounds very good, but are you sure this is feasible enough to implement?

It would probably be quite easy to make the packages *install* a proper 
configuration file per debconf, for example, but making them react correctly 
to changes in the /etc/default/maildelivery file *after* installation could 
prove difficult. It would probably require heavy patching (making the 
configuration file readers understand conditionals, for example)?
