Sorry, the versioned Breaks: ppp (<< 2.4.6) obviously only helps too
ensure that a recent enough version of ppp is installed. It doesn't
guard against breakage due to new ppp upstream releases.
I guess I would have to add a Breaks: ppp (>= 2.4.7) for that

Thinking about this, something like this could be useful for such
Breaks: != ppp-abi-version-2.4.6
as counterpart to
Depends: = ppp-abi-version-2.4.6

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
