Policy prohibits overriding conffiles that have been changed by
the admin. Deleting a file is considered changing it. One must
assume that the admin deleted the file for a reason. Debian does not
prevent users from shooting themselves in the foot. However, I
believe the new conffile will be installed as <filename>.dpkg-dist.
