Well, my personal opinion is that this is nearly always safe, and that
dpkg really should have an option that tells it to ignore the error
results from the script.

But the fackt that dpkg doesn't have such an option, seems to indicate
that others (dpkg author) disagree with that, and feel bad things could
happen if was dpkg was allowed to ignore those error codes.
