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"?
