This note is for
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=916699 . It will
only be displayed during an upgrade, a fresh installation will skip
it. But maybe I could also check for any existing "acceptable" config
before showing it. A package installed but not enabled automatically
seems pretty weird to me, especially  for helper programs which are
supposed to work out of box like minissdpd. Minissdpd in stretch is
enabled automatically without any debconf questions, disabling it
silently would only cause confusion.

Thanks for your correction.
