`suidmanager': What about things installed before it is?

 What happens when a package is installed prior to `suidmanager', and
 it wants to register itself?  It will check for the -x of
 `suidregister', and skip the registration.  Then, afer a bit, dselect
 might install `suidmanager', making it available.  Any package that
 wants it after that will get registered, but the ones before won't

 I can imagine there being other similar situations, between other
 sets of packages.

 What can be done?  Any ideas?

 Questions: Will `deity' contain this functionality?  Or `coas'?
 Should `suidmanager' be made a base package?  Will Debian 2.0 feature
 a properly topo-sorted install?
