What please is the benefit of unnecessarily reordering dependencies
and leaving everyone on tenterhooks as to whether it will change
installation outcomes?  (If this has already been explained I apologize
for overlooking it.)

Also, since you have all the data, could you please verify that you
have proven that at least for the current Lenny package dependencies
(which are of course subject to change) that the unnecessary reordering
has no side-effects?

Would you mind repeating the (hopefully automated) proof for each Lenny
release candidate?
