I can add one; it's not a lot of overhead given that lintian already has a
framework for checking for bad dependencies.  It's basically just another
branch in an if statement.

What's the precise check?  Any package depending on python-minimal should
receive an error (or a warning?)

Based on Vorlon's message:

If (package depends on python-minimal) and (package is not essential) then ERROR.

It's pretty definitely a bug, so AIUI should be marked as an error.

with roughly the text of Steve's previous message?

Short message: "Non-essential package depends on python-minimal."

Long Message: Something along the lines of Steve's meassage.

Uh... sure :)
