The package I have made (which also adds a graphical shutdown image
using zgv) does this in the post-installation script ...

# change control/alt/delete sequence to halt rather than reboot
sed 's/shutdown -t1 -a -r now/shutdown -t1 -a -h now/' \
< /etc/inittab > /etc/inittab.dpkg.lenny-shutdown
mv /etc/inittab /etc/inittab.pre-lenny-shutdown
mv /etc/inittab.dpkg.lenny-shutdown /etc/inittab
telinit q

But I was hoping to find a more elegant solution.  ;-)
