Thanks a lot.

That is probably redundant unless you need a debconf version higher that
one specified. It is funny how that went in probably all the
dictionaries we prepared, although in some cases due to the requirement
of a recent version. That probably had we all hardcoded somewhere in the
brain during dicts build. As a matter of fact I have checked the policy
document to see whether we put it there, and there is no explicit trace
of that requisite.
By the way with respect to Pre-Depends we are considering to lower that
dependency to a simple Depends, that seems to be enough, but we still
have to discuss that.
I am cc'ing this reply to the dict-common list to see if anybody sees a
reason for an explicit dependency on unversioned debconf debconf in IDWP.
