Querying what packages are installed in postinst

For the next version of a package which I currently have sponsored in Debian (mozilla-mozgest) I want to add support for mozilla-firebird (preliminary packages are avalible from http://people.debian.org/~eric/debian/i386) and mozilla-snapshot. The problem is that in order to do this I need to do different things for each of the browsers in postinst and postrm. Basicaly what I'd like to know is if theres a nicer way to test if a package is installed than just testing the existance of files that the package would create if it was installed?
