Bug#78206: apt-get should warn to run dpkg --configure --pending after exit with failure.

Package: apt
Version: 0.3.19
Severity: wishlist

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

# dpkg --configure --pending
Setting up kernel-package (7.21) ...

Setting up ipchains-perl (0.5-8) ...

Setting up libarr0 (0.1-43) ...
dpkg: error processing libarr0 (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script killed by signal (Interrupt)
Setting up libbonobo2 (0.28-3) ...

  Every time apt-get exits like that, if I run `dpkg --configure
  --pending', there are packages to configure.  I think a warning
  ought to be printed at the very least.  Ideas?
