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)?
