Thanks for replying.
Actually my proposed sentence is not accurate, but something more might be
added to that paragraph.
zope-* .postinst and only those files expect a shared question to be availa=
at configuration time. zope package is the only one that is supposed to ask
the question (trough .config and .template), hence there is no problem at
preconfiguration time. Since all packages need zope to be properly configur=
before their configuration phase start, there should not be any problem even
without preconfiguration.
