Well, I guess I have to disagree with Richard about the Debconf needs.
When a question comes with a high priority, it does need to be asked.
When you get a big fat warning telling you to reboot, it should not be
ignored. High priority questions (which are thankfully rare) are for
things that don’t have a sane default, in which case noninteractive
installation isn’t going to work.
I’m interested in PackageKit as a potential replacement for Synaptic,
and I dare to say that it will never replace it without proper debconf
