I agree. With a bit of apt-cache policy magic we can detect this on
the client side.

Problem is that in order to do that, we need to catch the initial
crash first and write it to disk, i. e. we would get the CPU/IO
overhead again by default. That alone doesn't worry me too much, but
it might be an issue in certain environments.
