Discussing this on IRC right now, I realise this could all be done
in shellcommands, but it's more elegant to have actions. Plus, the
Debian command suite is really suitable for actions, i.e. it has the
Cfagent Action Character (tm).

E.g:

apt-install:
  POSTFIX::
    postfix
    postfix-tls
      add=suggests,recommends
    postgrey
      suite=unstable

update-alternatives:
  SHELLSERVER::
    /usr/bin/editor -> /usr/bin/emacs

debconf:
  CVSSERVER::
    cvs cvs/pserver true
