I hope my last post explains sufficiently how Debian copes with this -
I should also mention that dselect lists which packages have been
upgraded, and you have the option to hold them if you've made
customisations or if you're just frit. It sorts the dependencies out
automatically - packages may depend, not just on a particular other
package, but on a particular *version* of that package. Sometimes you
have to force it to Do What I Say, but that's always possible.
