Import patches-unapplied version 1.4.42ubuntu4 to ubuntu/hoary

Imported using git-ubuntu import.

Changelog parent: f188ab614607c278fac3a2a33a6e2d9e8de0e481

New changelog entries:
  * Installer logs go in /var/log/installer now, not
  * Add just enough support for cdebconf's PROGRESS command to allow it to
    be used with the passthrough frontend and a cdebconf UI agent, and to
    send suitable template data along with it.
  * Backport from trunk:
    - The passthrough frontend sets the value of visible questions by
      getting the value from the UI agent, but it didn't set the value of
      invisible questions as the confmodule expects it to. It now sets the
      value of invisible questions in the same way as the noninteractive
  * Resynchronise with Debian.
  * Fix bug in man page example script. Closes: #286335
  * Add --unseen flag to debconf-set-selections. Closes: #286318
  * Fix typo in man page example. Closes: #285099
  * Patch from mdz to improve the passthrough frontend:
    - Use DEBCONF_READFD and DEBCONF_WRITEFD for passthrough communication
      if DEBCONF_PIPE is not set to a socket.
    - Change passthrough protocl for INPUT command so it is the same as in
      the debconf protocol, and pass the type of the question in a "DATA type"
    - Fix passing of extended descriptions in DATA. Note they're newline
    - Pass choices for multiselect questions.
    - Now usable with cdebconf as the client on the other side of the
      passthrough channel.
  * Resynchronise with Debian.
  * Translations:
    - Finnish updated (programs). Closes: #280709
    - Romanian added (programs). Closes: #283209
  * Install debconf.py to python 2.4's directory, not 2.3
  * Resynchronise with Debian.
  * Update Ubuntu branding.
  * Joey Hess
    - Force PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 in confmodule, confmodule.sh, debconf.py, and
      Debconf::Client::ConfModule to avoid bad behavior of the dynamic linker
      when Text::Iconv is loaded but its symbols have not really been
      resolved. This caused debconf to be killed with a relocation error
      in certian upgrades from woody involving packages that use debconf in
      their preinst. Closes: #278417 Thanks to Andrew Suffield and Branden
      Robinson for analysis.
    - Add check in frontend and debug message if PERL_DL_NONLAZY is not set
      to 1 when it's run from a preinst, in case I missed other entry points.
  * Colin Watson
    - Set the seen flag on questions asked in the noninteractive frontend if
      DEBCONF_NONINTERACTIVE_SEEN is set to true. This allows debootstrap to
      behave better (partly fixes #238301).
  * Translations:
    - Indonesian added (programs). Closes: #275981
    - Traditional Chinese renamed from zh_TW.Big5.po to zh_TW.po
      (Christian Perrier)
    - Simplified Chinese added (programs). Closes: #277470
    - Slovak translation added (programs and debconf). Closes: #279299
  * Disable KDE frontend, avoiding the build-dependency on libqt-perl
    (closes: Ubuntu #3133).
  * Resynchronise with Debian.
  * Joey Hess
    - Avoid a warning message in DbDriver::Copy that's triggered by d-i
      debconf preseeding. Closes: #275122
  * Translations:
    - Spanish updated (programs). Closes: #274148
    - Hebrew added (both). Closes: #274381
    - Italian added (programs) and updated (debconf). Closes: #274582, #274584
    - Norwegian Nynorsk added (programs). Closes: #275081
    - Polish updated (debconf). Closes: #275815
  * Joey Hess
    - Tightended the versioned conflicts/replaces on debconf-utils in
      debconf-i18n. Closes: #273970
  * Translations:
    - Updated Brazilian Portuguese translation (programs). Closes: #273941

      Closes: #271412
    - Correct trivial errors to Russian and Polish translations headers
  * Fix debconf-get-selections to not choke on files with comments followed
    by nothing.
  * Allow multiple spaces between all values except the last one in preseed
  * Skip questions with no known type also in debconf-get-selections.
  * Skip title questions in debconf-get-selections along with the notes, text,
    and errors previously skipped.
  * Add titles to the list of known types in debconf-set-selections, just in
  * Hack in an --installer parameter in debconf-get-selections so the d-i
    manual can document a sane way to generate d-i preseeding files.
  * Add the question's short description as a comment in
    debconf-get-selections output, and skip notes, text, and errors.
  * Improve the man page with state machine improvements and better back out
    handling from Bruce Perens.
