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.
