Bug#53227: apt could be smarter...

Package: apt
Version: 0.3.15

# apt-get -d install  ssh
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  ssh: Depends: gmp2 (>= 2.0.2)
E: Sorry, broken packages

Why doesn't it want to just *download* the package. unmet dependencies
should not prevent downloading only IHMO...
