So we should replace all 'interest' occurencies in 
d-e-a-(softwaves|lines|spacefun).triggers files with 'interest-noawait' 
to avoid this possible cycle.

The triggers have been introduced to solve an ordering problem just 
in case desktop-base is configured after debian-edu-artwork and the 
problem to make d-e-a-softwaves the default upon upgrades (ensure a 
determined state in case several d-e-a themes got installed in jessie).

Another solution might be to drop the theme packages completely and ship 
everything in d-e-a like desktop-base is doing it. Then use 
update-alternatives to set the active theme. I figure this approach 
would be a lot of work.
