Regardless of the merits (or demerits) of this proposal, I object to
trying to implement any changes to /var/lib/dpkg/status before the sarge
release.  We are supposed to be in the last stages of the release cycle,
and this is not the time to be trying to sneak changes to such a
fundamental piece of our package system into the release.
