Actually, debconf 0.9.81 (testing) requires perl-base (>= 5.6.1-5)
which leads to a great-big upgrade snowball. I was hoping that there
might be a way to massage the source package into compiling and
installing without having to upgrade much else. I know that there's a
new file in the source deb called debian/config that calls for this
ConfModule module. It's really more perl than I'm qualified to
evaluate, but it looks like I might get by just replacing it with an
empty file or something (yuck), since it's purpose seems to be to
*configure* postfix, something that I can pretty much do by hand.
