we need some solution to do distupgrade tests on "disappering" packages.
These can't currently be tested because they are no longer in the
package list of the target distribution.
One possibility could be
--extra-old-packages=the-disappearing-one -a some-dummy-package
* the old package is left on the system after the distupgrade, this is
* the old package is removed during the distupgrade (because something
properly Conflicts/Breaks/Replaces the package)
* something bad happens (unsatisfied deps, file overwrites, ...)
