This is only right for etch und etch-backports, but lenny and sid
show exim4-base.

Since exim4-daemon-* are depending on exim4-base this is resonable
But reinstall could be fail if the package pre- and/or post-install
behave diffrently between install+config and reinstall. In this case
pruge and install is the easiest solution.
