Heh, true.

I use dselect for that.

During the transition (which seems to be mostly over now), I just
used 'apt-get upgrade --with-new-packages' and a bunch of manual
'apt-get install libfoov5; apt-mark auto libfoov5' to help it along.
Occasionally, set things on hold.

I have this in apt.conf:

debug::pkgproblemresolver "true";
APT::Install-Recommends "0";
Dpkg::Progress-Fancy "false";

The output of the pkgproblemresolver is virtually illegible, but
sometimes helps tracking down stuff.
