Apologies if I don't understand this correctly.  I have a few questions.

How will this affect users dist-upgrading?  Does 7.10 + 6.06 both have LZMA
already installed to allow the upgrade?

Will this add a step for Ubuntu developers to make packages for Debian?

I like this idea as it looks like it can save users time and everyone
Thank you,
