Problem is, avahi-autoipd does not have a Depends on dhcp3-client (or
isc-dhcp-client ftm)
But I could workaround that by adding a Breaks: dhcp3-client

Problem with this is, I can't upload such an avahi-autoipd to unstable until
isc-dhcp-client is in unstable, too. Otherwise the package will not be installable.

Are you sure? According to apt-file I get:
avahi-autoipd: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/avahi-autoipd
avahi-autoipd: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/zzz_avahi-autoipd
debian-edu-config: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-debian-edu.conf
debian-edu-config: /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd-debian-edu.conf
fai-nfsroot: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-fai-script
fai-nfsroot: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-fai.conf
ntp: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/ntp
ntpdate: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/ntpdate
resolvconf: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resolvconf
samba-common: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/samba
sendmail-base: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/sendmail
whereami: /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/whereami


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
