I don't understand why dependency checking plus build dependency
checking would need support for keeping old library packages while
dependency checking without build dependency checking doesn't need it?

Isn't it just a matter of migrating needed build dependencies together
with migrating packages like it's also migrating needed dependencies
together now?
