The ideal way to handle this is in package meta data, which then allows
tools like apt to act on it (e.g. by alerting on installed/incomplete

But that needs

- a proper spec for the format
- support in dak
- support in the package tools

so the approach of a self-contained tool was the more realistic choice
to enable a working solution for the start of squeeze LTS and like all
ad hoc solutions it sticks around...
