I'm not convinced by your arguments here, Thomas. If the distributor were
packaging Octavia for X but the image is using some other operating system,
say Y, why are X's packages relevant? I would think that if this is
something inside an image going to be launched by Octavia that
co-installibilty wouldn't really be an issue.
I don't lean either way right now, so I'd really like to understand your
point of view, especially since right now it isn't making much sense to me.
