[Debconf-devel] Bug#459472: debconf: Missing dependency for "dialog-like program".

When removing packages from my system, I unintentionally broke debconf
because 'apt-get remove' allowed me to remove the package 'whiptail'.
After that, debconf started to print:
debconf: (No usable dialog-like program is installed, so the dialog based frontend cannot be used. at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd/Dialog.pm line 75, <> line 1.)
Shouldn't there be a dependency that prohibits someone to delete all 'dialog'
programs if debconf is still (to be) installed?
