And there we disagree... anything less than proper dependency-aware
upgrade simply doesn't count. This is a *hard* problem which is why
so much of the value of dpkg is in the "interesting" cases it
handles. It would be nice to see that independently appear in
openpackages, but we've got this perfectly good dpkg over here that I
at least see as so far ahead in this regard that it is a different
game altogether... and while I don't have time to go
teach/tech-transfer the years and years of work that go into that part
of dpkg, I *do* have time to attempt to apply it directly.
Does that help make it clearer what is going on here?
