2 packages using same conffile

What does one do in a situation where two packages both provide the same
conffile?  Currently they use different names for the file, but both
packages can (and probably should) use the same file.  How should this be
handled, both from a policy and from an implementation standpoint?

I could create the file in postinst if it doesn't exist, but this seems like
a Bad Idea<tm> for many reasons.  Is there really no Right Way to do this
except to leave them as two seperate files and have the user deal with it
however they will?
