RFR: debsums debconf templates


Here are two debconf questions I would like to see reviewed (one of which is new):

Template: debsums/apt-autogen
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Should debsum files be automatically generated by apt-get?
 Not all packages contain debsum information as is.  However, debsums can
 be installed so that apt will automatically generate debsum files of
 installed packages.  This may be useful for checking system integrity
 later, though it should not be relied on as a security measure.

Template: debsums/dailycron
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Run daily debsums security check?
 By default, a cronjob will verify every package's checksum information
 every night to make sure that none of the files have changed since the
 package was installed.
 This security check takes some time to run but is highly recommended.
