    initial v4

    33On cluster machines, since we are the sysadmin, we should be passing `-o Dpkg::Options::=--force-confnew` to aptitude.

    5 On not-cluster machines, it's less clear. It sounds like Athena 9 used rpm's default behavior, which was the equivalent of `--force-confold`. I think ideally the update should fail and e-mail root (yeah, yeah, #83, I know), leaving them to fix the upgrade, but I don't know if there's a way to make dpkg error out on conffile conflicts.
