Normally dpkg renames overwritten conffiles into conffile.dpkg-old
and not installed conffiles into conffile.dpkg-dist. However I'm not
sure if it also does this when it has accepted that the user had modified
the configuration file.
dpkg --fsys-tarfile foo.deb |tar xf etc/where/the/conffile/is
Even more secure, unpack the .deb file somewhere else and copy the
dpkg -x foo.deb /tmp/foo
If you come from outside of Finland, you live in wrong country.
