Yes, b) should be correct, but I think the Depends: in
bacula-director-common is not needed, Replaces: and Breaks in
bacula-director-DBTYPE should be sufficient, if my logic is correct. But
to be really really sure, I testing it this time with my local apt
repository instead of only using dpkg.

Yes, this should be done in on consistent upload then. Will 7.4.3+dfsg-3
be for experimental as well?

No, I only ever checkout out upstream, pristine-tar and master.
