Thanks. The reason I asked about 'obsoleting' is because I wondered
about what will happen on the upgrade case. Say, I remove python-foo
from bullseye. When a user running buster with python-foo installed

If a leaf package bar changes from Depends: python-foo to python3-foo,
then python-foo will remain installed. There are lots of packages in
Stretch that are not in Buster. Upgrading leaves them in place unless
there is something which actively Conflicts: or Breaks: them. That's
why autoremove is so useful after dist-upgrade.
What about reverse dependencies that are "Suggests" vice "Depends?" Do
all Suggests dependencies needs to be removed first as well?
NOTE: reverse-depends (aside from '-b' being broken in unstable right
now), does not seem to show Suggests dependencies by default.
