well if it's slower to get the job rightly done, imho it's worth it.
installation isn't a race, it's about setting things up correctly.
just write a script to do it, put it in apt.conf.d, and it's already
transparent.  package apt-get dist-upgrade might run a little slower,
but it shouldn't be that noticable of a penalty for the average package...
