The new dpkg could break the packages that have to be upgraded to continue
to use the same semantic for the triggers, there's probably only a couple
of them (maybe libc6/ldconfig, update-initramfs?, what else?).
On the other hand, the upgrade would be somewhat awkward. The new
updated package would have to pre-depend on the new dpkg and given the
breaks it means to always follow this:
- deconfigure the broken packages
- upgrade & configure dpkg
- upgrade the broken packages
