Bug#830829: Package installation should fail without agreement of the administrator


I think the mentioned changes should be documented using debconfig and
unless the administrator answers „yes, do as I want“ the upgrade should
be aborted. Otherwise many systems will silently upgraded to an
unbootable state as for example in Bug#847119 .

BTW. It looks to me that the corresponding functions should be
implemented in one place for all packages together (cryptsetup, systemd
etc.) so that they cen honour the following cases:

nested /usr (with subdirectories)
bind /usr
symlinked /usr
