That's the think, I believe this won't be enough. I just noticed on my
workstation that libpg-java is one of the packages removed from Debian
archives (candidate for removal in synaptic and 'aptitude purge ~o').
At this point I noticed that other packages depend on it and would
also be removed. I searched Debian PTS and found that it was renamed.
I manually installed the new package and than I could simply remove
libpg-java *without* removing the r-deps. Thus no upgrade path from
Debian 6.0 to 7.0.
