This is really cool, thank you a lot for working on it! The KDE
frontend will also be much easier to maintain with debconf-kde-helper,
porting it to Qt 6 when it arrives should be very easy.
This change may also help with a current effort to improve the way
debconf is handled when packages are installed via PackageKit (by
potentially making it possible to get rid of KDE special-casing).
