The file should be declared in the .deb as a conffile, but it doesn't
seem to be.  Which is strange, as debhelper normally assumes all files
in /etc/ are conffiles.

(pause) Aha, the source package has no debian/compat level so it defaults
to very-very-old, when debhelper didn't do that.  I'll bug it for when
Timothy has time to look at it.
