No postinstall script should ever modify files in /etc if they have been
changed from their default.  By extension, they shouldn't do any editing
there either.

By naming it correctly and making sure it behaves sensibly considering
that it runs each time setup finishes, i.e. exiting as early as possible
if there's nothing to do, using dash instead of bash and a number of
other things.
