/usr/sbin/base-config  to switch from one delivery mode to another

dpkg-reconfigure <mua's,mta> for all mua's mta's installed on the system

would be the steps to reconfigure.  Now while you said and I think about
it,  each program working with mail-spools could register itself on
installation and de-register on de-installation, so the reconfiguration
process could be automated.

Let's make a package "maildelivery" and

dpkg-reconfigure maildelivery

would do the job above.
