The point is that the current behaviour is to drop the database / database user upon
purging (if the user selected this).
This means that the postrm needs a way to access the database with a priviledged
account, the credentials of which need either be saved or asked for.
Most likely, I'll just drop this feature altogether...
(This is pretty much wat Jamin suggested on his reply to -devel.)
