I think it should be b-e, but with a versioned dep thats high enough to
get all those versioned dependencies away that are already existing.
As we try sarge, a version-dep >= {sarge-version} is suggested.

(Not that all packages are really updated for that before sarge, but
lets get b-e with such a thing in sarge IMO).
