We'll have to make it dpkg >=1.8 since that will fix some stupid bugs
in dpkg-statoverride, and we'll have to be careful to coordinate 
uploading the packages at the same day. Otherwise I don't have any

Oh, yes, one issue: there is no way suidmanager can really know it
an entry in suid.conf is a user override or not. The only indication
could be a package name, but there is nothing prevent somebody from
having a package called `local' or `user' installed which will mess
up an automatic switch.
