woody-to-sarge test upgrade

Hello Debian developers,

I am performing semi-automatised woody-to-sarge upgrade of one
server and I find the upgrade is more painful than what is necessary.

apt-get dist-upgrade try to remove lots of the packages, and doing so
trigger bugs.

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  apache apache-common autoconf autoconf2.13 automake console-tools-libs
  debhelper defoma devscripts dpkg-cross dpkg-dev eperl ferm gs gs-common
  gsfonts kernel-package latex2html libdigest-md5-perl libfltk1-dev libgd-dev
  libhtml-clean-perl libimage-size-perl libmailtools-perl libnet-perl
  libterm-readkey-perl libtimedate-perl lists-archives mailtools mhonarc
  mnogosearch-local patchutils perl perl-modules slice spamassassin tetex-bin
  tetex-extra weblint wml xbase-clients xlibmesa-dev xlibs-dev
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  apache2-utils aptitude coreutils cpp-3.3 dash debconf-i18n dselect e2fslibs
  emacs20 emacsen-common g++-3.3 gcc-3.3 gcc-3.3-base gcc-3.4-base initscripts
