First note: if a solution works, I do not care if it is ugly or not.

Second note: the solution we choose will be carried over until wheezy+1.

That being said, I am not aware of any general solution to this problem
(because each package moving to ucf should have the same problem), so I
would ask on debian-devel@ (please tell me if I should do it).
Something like `dpkg-maintscript-helper migrate_to_ucf` would be the
preferable solution ;-)

However, the ucf-managed files are not dpkg's conffiles:

This means that we could hit again the piuparts bug we had for


Thx, bye,
