OK, that makes sense. Then I suppose that the only place that the
dependency ordering is needed is in the calls to the add-on pacakges
install scripts that happen en-masse when a flavor of emacs is
installed. A little work with tsort (presuming I can get dpkg to
cooperate at that point and hand over the relevant Depends lines) and
we should have everything fixed up.
