W postinst-uses-db-input

All reports of postinst-uses-db-input for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

It is generally not a good idea for postinst scripts to use debconf commands like db_input. Typically, they should restrict themselves to db_get to request previously acquired information, and have the config script do the actual prompting.
