Keeping permissions after upgrade

Hi all,

I was wondering if there is any mechanism in the Debian system to keep
certain permissions on programs even after an apt upgrade.  For example,
ping is root.root 4755.  I edit /etc/suid.conf to make is root.staff 4750
(same with crontab) and whenever the package containing that binary gets
upgraded, there go my permissions.  Any ideas greatly appreciated.
