If we used one file they would be required to comment things out to
enable one protocol and indeed generate a debconf question.

How about if we made one file per protocol.  disable-x25.conf stylee,
then they could simply remove the file to fix it.  Would that avoid the
conflict.  Cirtainly we could use a dpkg redirect if the file is to go

Would that work better?
