Hmm, I may not have an immediate solution, but this is an interesting use case 
for configuration upgrade based on config-model [1]. Although in this case we 
are dealing with config files stored in user's home dir.

I can come up with a scheme to upgrade fluxbox config file, but I wonder if 
modification of /home/*/fluxbox/ files is acceptable when upgrading a package?

All the best
