Hmmm, the problem is more complex than I've thought in the first place
because the code to clean up the menu of junior-* packages is contained
in blends-common. So it is not enough to verify whether the code exists
and just exit in case the test fails. I have to find a way which
ensures that blends-common is removed *after* removal of all junior-*
Is this a case for using Pre-Depends or is there any other way to make
sure that blends-common will removed not too early?
