I don't have bootlogd installed.

However, I'm starting to feel that we need a proper
dpkg-maintscript-helper method to deal with config files that change
package ownership, especially in cases when the new package that
adopts some config files won't necessarily be pulled in as a Depends
or Recommends of the old package.

I'd really welcome the feedback of dpkg maintainers on how this could
be best handled.
