I agree that this seems overly complicated.

I'm not sure exactly how to undo the situation safely for current
installs without doing some research and testing.  I suppose the
maintainer scripts can take whatever is pointed to by the current
alternative and copy that into a temporary directory that is then
renamed to "/etc/zookeeper/conf" after the alternative is deleted.

Thank you for the bug report.

Cheers,
