Why is debconf not preconfiguring?

Hi all,

I'm interested in using debconf to warn a user that's upgrading from an
old version of ircd-hybrid and uses some now-unsupported directives in
the configuration file about the big change that was made. However I'd
like this to happen before the package is unpacked, but the config
script only seems to get run during the postinst.

How does apt determine whether to do a 'Preconfiguring packages...' or
not? I'm stumped. Another package of mine does get Preconfigured, but I
fail to see how it differs from ircd-hybrid.

Completely stumped,

Joshua Kwan
