I hate to say this, since actually implementing it is a lot of work in
supporting programs like debhelper, but if the debconf-2.0 pseudopackage
was introduced prior to a new feature in the debconf interface there needs
to be a debconf-2.1 or debconf-3.0 as well. If cdebconf implements that
protocol, it can provide that pseudopackage as well.
