It's not that complicated if we have the new "Breaks" field. I just
submitted my suggestion on the package linux-latest-2.6.
The idea is to have something like this:
Breaks: kqemu-modules-2.6-686 (<< 2.6.21+7), unionfs-modules-2.6-686 (<< 2.6.21+7), ...
That way, linux-image-2.6-686 is upgraded only if a matching
kqemu-modules-2.6-686 / unionfs-modules-2.6-686 is also available. Of
course if the user has not installed any of those packages, it's a no-op
as it should be.
Some details probably need to be worked out, but it looks like a good way
to do that.
