Thanks for reporting. I have been thinking about a good way to solve
this, but still did not arrive to any good solution. These files are
examples to be used as an starting point for the user to build consoles.
So they can't be owned by the package, and if they are conffiles, the
user will be hassled with every upgrade (and deleted files restored)...

I will try to find a solution and upload a fix asap. Any recommendations
are welcomed!
