It has been mentioned to you in this thread already (by Neil): use
"equivs". Can you explain why equivs doesn't match your needs?

Yes, it is a hack, but there is always some sort of spectrum between a
clean solution and a hack, and you have to concede you're surely not in
the most common of the use cases. This discussion has the potential of
being useful, but before proposing to change hundreds of packages, you
need at the very least to explain why the current recommended solution
does not fulfill your needs.
