Odd, I only see
$ apt-file search epkowa.conf
libsane-extras: /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf
I'll Cc debian-devel because this is all over my head.
Wait, you said Avasys ships debian packages...
So for safety you don't delete... hmmm, special... perhaps beyond
policy. I'll CC the list anyway as this is all far beyond me.
Perhaps upon purge a special message should be printed...
