Difficult to parse for an human. :)

We can stick to the first solution. It introduces new virtual
packages but make dependencies more readable and more easy to
maintain. Furthermore, we can link Suggests to Depends (when we
depend on php5-mysql, we suggests mysql-server).

I don't know however how upgrade will be handled. Will aptitude
be clever enough to pull the correct virtual package based on
what is currently installed ?
