[Pkg-roundcube-maintainers] Bug#471779: roundcube: postrm purge should run a db_purge to clean the debconf db

Package: roundcube
Version: 0.1-4
Severity: normal

According to The Debconf Programmer's Tutorial:

 There is one other alteration you need to make to the postrm
 script. When your package is purged, it should get rid of all the
 questions and templates it was using in the database. Accomplishing
 this is simple; use the "purge" command (make sure you don't fail if
 debconf has already been removed, though):

if [ "$1" = "purge" -a -e /usr/share/debconf/confmodule ]; then
    # Source debconf library.
    . /usr/share/debconf/confmodule
    # Remove my changes to the db.
    Note: Debhelper will do this for you if you use the
    dh_installdebconf command.

Roundcube is currently not doing this in the postrm purge, resulting in things left over when they probably shouldn't be.
