Couldn't it be potentially dangerous to have a dpkg in a released
version of Debian that silently ignores Breaks? It seems it would both
allow for much foot-shooting by anyone who tries to install packages
from another source that use Breaks, as well as prevent us from using
Breaks in any packages in etch+1, since upgrades won't work.
