APT does not do what?  You aren't making much sense to me.

Assuming both are unpacked, a simple dpkg --configure -a will configure
both.  Or a simple dpkg --configure wordnet wordnet-base.  Neither is
a long command line.  And I believe depend loops are seldom longer than
a couple packages.

I don't see any bug reports against wordnet.  What kind of bugs are you
talking about?
