Re: Semantic change for dpkg triggers?

In general, the reason for this rule about satisfying dependencies is
that a triggering package may well not be functional at all until the
trigger is run.  For example, if the triggering package T needs to be
registered with the interested package I, a package D which depends on
T may find that T does not work - and D's postinst may fail due to T
being broken.

If postinst depends on the package, then it should be a pre-depend, not a depend, shouldn't it?
