So, sort of a variant on Pierre Fourès's suggestion?

I like that.


c 2) a transition into LTS should probably be accompagnied with a default run of check-support-status

c 3) when requesting installation of unsupported packages, provide a warning

For c 3), this could be similar to when e.g. apt/apt-get pauses to ask due to dependencies, and overridable with the same options.

However, as Pierre says, this is quite a bit of extra work for package system developers/maintainers.
