Anyone else thinking that maybe we should just immediately configure all

I've just tried to strace dpkg -i libc6, and look at the result; _that_
dpkg (dpkg, dpkg-split, dpkg-deb, libdpkg)
So we'd probably need pre-depends dpkg->(gzip,tar,fileutils)->libc->ldso.
Of these, we have tar->libc6, fileutils->libc6, libc6->ldso.
By the way, shouldn't Pre-Depends: only be used for Essential: yes
packages? I see Pre-Depends: without Essential: in the following packages:
libc5, libc6, perl, netstd, elvis-tiny, libreadline2 - probably some of
these ought to be essential, and the others not use pre-depends?
