[Pkg-bluetooth-maintainers] Bug#383373: hcid: package upgrade loses keyboard

Package: bluez-utils
Version: 3.1-3.1
Severity: normal

I've just dist-upgraded to latest packages in testing. Part of that
upgrade wanted to replace bluez-utils. It stopped hcid, among other
things, leaving me with no keyboard left to answer the questions about
config files. I had to find a USB keyboard to finish the process until
it started up again.

Perhaps, as a special case, this upgrade logic could leave the old hcid
running while answering questions on the config file, and only when
things are happy could it stop/start to the new code. Admittedly this
still has potential for breakage, but in common cases where it goes
smoothly it'll still work.
