Please always retry this kind of thing with aptitude, and try to let it
choose alternate resolutions to the dependency chains.
Apitude, too, *really* likes to choose 500 deletions rather than upgrading
even a single package to a version with slightly-lower priority (as defined
in /etc/apt/pref*), but at least you can tell it to try harder. :-/
