Boot floppies developers should grab these.  We should assume they'll
be installed prior to release.

Whoever volunteers to actually do it can pick the implementation, I
would say!  :)  (So long as it works with base, of course)

Ew!  That's problem.  Uh... Uh.... Uh.... I guess we could either
maintain this info manually, or in the package with an explicit
Conflicts line, or else maybe there's a way to run apt in "simulation"
mode IIRC, but that would probably be tricky to implement.  I guess I
would lobby for the 'Conflicts' solution since then we can pester task
maintainers to maintain this data, and the UI could scan this
