What is a `text database' ? That term seems very unclear to me; but
based on the bug report I'd certainly be happy to second something
clearer to achieve this.

Basically, the idea seems to be `if there's an update-<foo> program,
the file that's being updated shouldn't be a conffile'. Yes?

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG encrypted mail preferred.
