The conffile isn't plain obsolete, but moved to another package. The
policy doesn't declare a special case here but also fails to define
precisely when a conffile is "obsolete".
So, removing the conffile should be easy, by using dh_installdeb
functionality but I don't know if it's the appropriate thing to do.
