We do support partial upgrades.  If a package combination is allowed by
their declared relationships, and doesn't work, that's a serious bug in
those packages.  Now I don't know the details of emboss and empathy, so
I don't know what breaks when mixing lenny and squeeze, but hopefully
you do, so you can explain.
