how to override a conffile (not using dpkg-divert)?

Hi folks,

https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ap-pkg-diversions.html says

"Do not attempt to divert a conffile, as dpkg does not handle it well."

So I wonder what would you suggest to override a conffile (e.g.
/etc/ssh/sshd_conf and /etc/ssh/ssh_conf) from another package
depending upon the "conffile owner"?

Is it safe to ignore this warning?
