the debconf stuff asks for the user name, but doesn't use it at all
(at least not in config or postinst).

The admin user name is set in cgi.conf at varous places. We'd need to
remove the entire file from dpkg-conffile handling or to do complex
include handling to allow the user name to be settable in debconf.

I'd say that it's not worth the hassle and would vouch for removing
the debconf question for the admin name and use nagiosadmin or
nagiosadm everywhere.
