Local, custom and persistent (/etc) config files in Debian


I would like to do some changes to some configuration files (under /etc)... done
 -->  I create a package-config which changes all my configs

I would like to modify previous configuration files (filtered by sed)
and be able to change unchanged files as well... done
 -->  I create a package-config even more hackish

Which are current practices people doing in such cases? Is there a
better flow to customize configuration files via package system?

Are practices described on debathena [1] or config::model [2]
something we should follow?
