the dejavu package has been reworked in the latest release (based on 
Debian 2.19-1);

  * split the package into two (-core and -extra) together with a 
    metapackage (ttf-dejavu) to provide smooth upgrades.
  * ttf-dejavu-core contains the Sans, Sans-Bold, Serif, Serif-Bold,
    SansMono and SansMono-Bold variants only.
  * ttf-dejavu-extra contains the rest of the variants.

the full patch can be seen in [1]
I've discussed it on #dejavu and seems like a good patch. I'd like to know
what you think about this before adopting it in Debian.

Keeping Debian and Ubuntu packages aligned would IMHO also be a good idea.
