Couldn't debhelper/dh_installdeb generate that Pre-Depends via
${misc:Pre-Depends} if debian/*.triggers contains noawait?
That sounds better to me then hard-coding the dependency.

This would have the additional benefit, that in jessie+1, a simple
rebuild would be sufficient to get rid of the dependency again without
having to touch the source packages.

Joey, dpkg maintainers, what do you think?
