I see one problem here: postinst will start the director at its end,
because up until now, the database is configured and ready before.

If we change this, the (re)start of the director has to also be done in
the trigger and not in the postinst.

Question is: is the trigger system designed to be used like this?

Or are we trying to fix a problem at the whole wrong level?

Maybe apt/dpkg needs a change, where if a package is Recommends: but
installed in the same action as the package recommending it, it should
be treated as if it where a Depends:?
