I'm not sure what an "interactive upgrade" is.  How do you detect
that?  Is that when it's not run from d-i or something?

Does this mean it's going to ask us on each upgrade?

With the Depends you're letting people install it now, so on
first _install_ it's going to divert it without prompt?  Or is
that part of the "interactive upgrade"?
