debathena-cluster-login-config cannot be installed from a tty

I had a machine that barfed in the middle of an update because of networking issues. I said to my self, "no problem, I'll just log in on VT1 and fix it". Except every time it tried to run c-l-c's postinst, it died, because "initctl stop tty1" kills my shell which is running it. I had to start up ssh, log in there, and run dpkg --configure -a. Admittedly, this is unlikely to happen in the wild, but it's still dumb.

I think I'd like to fix #555 at the same time, and merge c-l-c and reactivate into a single packgae, modulo debathena-cluster-getty-config which ONLY deals with disabling the ttys. That will greatly help with debugging the cluster environment, since that package should rarely need upgrading.
