passwd effectively is Essential because bash depends on it.  So I'm
pretty sure you don't have to worry about it being removed.

Just coordinate two uploads to happen in the same dinstall cycle:

  shadow 1:4.0.12-6 where passwd Depends: debianutils (>= 2.15)
  debianutils 2.15 Conflicts and Replaces: passwd (<< 1:4.0.12-6)

I think the passwd versioned dep on debianutils will have to stay until
etch is released.
