Re: dpkg question: preinst run before Depends:?

This sounds a bit like the install-info problem. There is a Right Way (TM)
but doing that now would possibly break a lot of systems.

How about keeping with 

   d) include the (very small) modules from dpkg-perl in the preinst

and return to the matter later when the Right Way can be implemented
or there comes a version of Debian which will break older systems
