Another option would be to add real reverse dependancy support to apt
(a Task: field is really a reverse dependancy, if you get what I mean).
Reverse dependancies have other uses, and the lower in the package
manager stack they are supported, the better.

see shy jo, cringing at the concept of a package manager stack, but
            that's what we have now
