I'd be curious to see what that was. Note that dselect-upgrade is only
goin to work if you actually enter dselect's selection screen and allow
it to mark packages for addition/removal.
Note also that one of the reasons that the transition packages exist is
such that the postrm scripts of the old packages aren't run during the
upgrade as they attempt to run update-alternatives when perl doesn't
So if you wish to remove them, do so *after* the upgrade completes.
