   * Expand substitution variables when replying to localised METAGET
     requests for description, extended_description, or choices.
   * Add support for an 'escape' capability. If a confmodule sets this using
     CAPB, then commands it sends to debconf will be processed for backslash
     escapes (\n is a newline, \ followed by any other character is just that
     character) and debconf's replies will be backslash-escaped similarly.
     This allows such things as embedding newlines in substitutions and
     fetching extended descriptions using METAGET; the use of a capability is
     required because otherwise this would break compatibility with old
     confmodules. Closes: #126753
   * Avoid leaking a file descriptor from DebconfCommunicate.
   * Fix truncation of multi-line return values to handle values over two
     lines long correctly.
   * Add a debconf-escape program and make the confmodules unescape text
     automatically in escape mode. At present we don't escape text
     automatically, but you can use 'debconf-escape -e' yourself if you want
     an easy way to do that.
   * Remove *.pyc and *.pyo on clean.

     - Hungarian new programs. Closes: #353933
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Add the same insane kind of fork check for Qt having a working display as
     we already had for GTK, since both libraries are written by monkeys who
     think that having a *library* exit(3) is a good idea if there's not a
     usable display. Sheesh. (On the plus side, the same monkeys have taught
     users to not care if it takes a 9 ghz machine to run a simple dialog, so
     who cares if we have to use expensive forking to work around your brain
     damage.) Closes: #354656, #244972, #246133
