I must admit that I didn't find the relevant parts in the huge thread
you had about that while I was away.  Can you give me (or us) a short
hint why you need to change the packages at all (there's no changelog
entry unfortunately)?

As has been discussed previously, the general problem can only be solved
with dpkg changes (either a trigger mechanism, or at least a new state
"configured but depending packages aren't").  But am I right that you
want to solve the particular problem which shows up on every upgrade of
texlive-base-bin by changing jadetex to not load latex.fmt, but instead
latex.ltx etc., and this didn't work?
