It turns out that the problem isn't caused by the postinst script. I
tried stripping out portions of it piece by piece (starting with the
conffile handling/dpkg-maintscript-helper snippets), but nothing
helped. Then I took a look at what should've appeared right afterwards
if dpkg didn't get "stuck" somehow:

Setting up bumblebee (3.0.1-1) ...
Adding members from group(s) 'adm sudo admin' to 'bumblebee':
update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
[ ok ] Starting Bumblebee daemon: bumblebeed.

Ah, bumblebee's init script...

A 3-way comparison later between the distro-agnostic init script
provided upstream, the one provided by suwako.nomanga.net, and the one
currently in the pkg-nvidia git repo (presumably taken from a dh-make
template?), and it turns out that this is what was missing:

+DAEMON_ARGS="--daemon --use-syslog"

And the package installs fine now. :)

Aron, have you contacted upstream and asked to merge our work with
their PPA packaging? I want to try to push as much of our work
upstream to avoid duplicate work and potential oversights on our
part...also, I suppose maybe some of their Ubuntu PPA packagers might
be able to help with upstart. I'll go about preparing a merge request
on Github if you aren't planning on doing so yourself.

Now that bumblebee is taken care of, I've (finally) uploaded my primus
packaging, to collab-maint for now (but am open to moving it into
pkg-nvidia) [1].
