Re: dpkg-statoverride vs. suidmanager

I just read this whole bloody thread again for the last time. Here is
what we decided to do:

> >   * New suidmanager depends on new dpkg, and on upgrade, imports all

However, dpkg 1.8 implements dpkg-statoverride --import. We decided not
to go that route, so why?

What we need is to get a new suidmanager uploaded that depends on 
dpkg >= 1.8 and imports suid.conf.
