I don't know.  I simply removed the above portion of the packaged
script and made my own logrotate configuration.  I highly doubt you'll
run into problems there by updating the package -- the package won't
have any newer releases.  The new version is packaged as 'exim4'.
Additionally you can check the list in
/var/lib/dpkg/info/exim.conffiles to see if the file is marked as
config.  If it is, then dpkg will prompt you during an upgrade.
