That's right, an upgrade of the cron package won't touch /etc/crontab
unless one explicitly tells dpkg to go ahead and use the maintainer's
version of this configuration file.

In my case, when I upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2, I am going to background the
dpkg process (Z option) and examine carefully the differences between
the old and new configuration files of each package since I do not
want to break things just for keeping the old files.
