I was using /var/lib/dpkg/status.udeb while it was generating an
incompatable status file, but that was half the reason i add full
support, so post install we could use normal packaging tools and upgrade
from existing udebs.

I would have though integrating packing between the install process and
post-install would be pretty important given the installer revolves
around packaging.
