cool.  it's fairly low-volume as far as lists go, mostly bugs and
notifications of new uploads.

okay.  it's worth pointing out that dbconfig-common is completely
sarge-compatible too (it's just a bunch of debconf templates, shell
scripts, and wrappers around mysql/psql cli's), and has no
dependencies other than pwgen (for generating random passwords).

i guess that it's also worth pointing out that it's also fairly easy
to bring dbconfig-common in on packages that didn't previously use it,
though you can help yourself now by storing the password information in a
machine-readable (php/perl/shell) config file.

cool.  i currently don't know of any issues minus a particularity with
postgres databases and schema permissions, so any feedback is welcome.
