The current dftp doesn't (I haven't used dpkg-ftp).  Currently dftp's
better for incremental upgrades (or getting all the new packages so
you can do it by hand with dpkg), rather than a complete overhaul.

If dpkg supported something like dpkg --dependencies foo.deb (does
it?) then it would be fairly easy to handle the simple cases of
package install reordering.
