Just wanted to follow-up on this one is somebody do a search and finds
First, I went with the master.postinst copied to package1 then package2,
as symlinks are problematic with CVS (I know... we should switch to SVN,
just too lazy to switch...).
Second, for that config file problem, the solution (given by my sponsor
Daniel Baumann) was to create a package-common that holds the
configuration files in /etc. This way there is no conflict.
