Right, but NB that we don't actually need this. We only need to handle
a rather small and known set of packages here (such as
bcmwl-kernel-source and nvidia-current); none of those actually use
debconf, and it should stay that way. There is no reason to ask the
user any debconf question when he already made his choices in the
"hardware drivers" GUI.
