The pre-dependency is satisfied by the version of dpkg in the previous
Debian release, so having it or not has no impact on Debian upgrades. It
impacts Ubuntu because lucid shipped with an earlier version of dpkg, so the
Pre-Depends is needed to give smooth LTS->LTS upgrades.

Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
