Yeah, I got bit by that too, and it took me a while to find that...
maybe we need some sort of "transitional-recommends" field?  Something
that is ignored if you are installing the package (to avoid causing
even more pain to dselect users, or something), but noticed on an
upgrade? (obviously it need more subtlety than that, but this might be
a more useful distinction than we've had before for splitting

[it is *possible* that nfs-server wasn't even on the mirrors, maybe
because it was new, when the netstd or netbase or whatever used to
have it, dropped it; oh well, that's what "unstable" is all about...]
