 It's not a problem of "NoAuto: yes": as you note yourself, there's no
 way with plain APT to pull from a repository only when it's required.

 You could argue that APT lacks the feature, but I think we need some
 higher level program to force APT into installing the correct versions
 (just like pbuilder-satisfydepends-experimental does for example).
