Yeah, don't worry if Berkeley breaks LDAP, or if dbus breaks HAL, we'll
address it and fix it.

However, please try to install as many dependencies of the package
you are updating as possible. At least common and/or important and/or
ones you think most folks will install.

That way, we'll know those dependencies don't break the original
package. Hope this makes sense to everyone. If not, let me know and
I'll try to clarify.
