Configuring debconf not to ask for input during upgrades?

Hi guys,

I've recently discovered cron-apt and even better, secpack (from http://sdn.vlsm.org/share/Debian-Doc/manuals/securing-debian-howto/ch9.en.html ) and under section "9.1.7 Automatic updates in a Debian GNU/Linux system", they talk about configuring cron so debconf won't ask for input during non-interactive upgrades (and yes, I know the reasons not to have this process automated) :)

My question is how exactly do you configure cron to do this?  I don't really see anything about it in the debconf man page, so I could really use some advice.
