  In case of tight link between data and game (say, version 0.2.3 of
the game doesn't play with of the data), I think the best is
to use strict versioned depends on the binary and possibly versioned
conflicts on the -data package. My guess is that it should take care
of all version incompatibilities while allowing people to install the
data independently of the game. (or did I miss something ?).
