Did not touch trigger stuff for a while, let's see if I catched up what

Cupt calls '--triggers-only --pending' in the end of run when
"trigger deferring" (i.e. '--no-triggers') is enabled, which is the
default (both in wheezy and jessie).
Do I read your explanation  correctly that '--triggers-only
--pending' needs to be invoked (in the end) always, since dpkg may
choose not to process triggers not just because '--no-triggers' is
passed, but also because dependencies of a 'triggers-pending' package
are not satisfied right at that time?
