Well, I've changed a bit my rules file, because it would failed with
space named files..
Indeed "for i in '/bin/ls';" does not behave good with space names, and
splitt "a file" in "a" and "file"..
Instead, it is good to use: "/bin/ls | while read i;"
I've not tested the issue with find, but I beleive it would be the same..

Should be merged in the final package.. But I don't want to change
Marc's file, I would not feel it nice :)

Again, I do not agree with this point, as it seems more clever to me
that we use the more we can the means provided by the original application.
Mainly because packaging a webapp is a lot of work, and it can be all
the more painfull if upstream choose, for instance, to change its conf
file structure: the package with a debianized config would have to
provide a way of converting its own file while upstream would certainly
provide it its way..
But well, if anyone wants to do a debconf thing, I'm not against, but
wouldn't like to have to maintain it..
