As a workaround I'm usially adding a comment

   # <dh-update-R>do not delete this</dh-update-R>

but that's for sure no acceptable solution.  Gordon (or somebody else)
do you have some spare cycles to make sure dh-update-R will rewrite only
the R Dependencies and leave other Depends we added manually alone?

Kind regards
