Great! Ok, so to see if I have this right, aqbanking can be enabled
without the package installed, and it works fine unless you use the
aqbanking wizard?

I'd almost be fine with that, and a post-install/post-upgrade message
to that effect ("Install aqbanking from unsupported"), assuming I did
grasp all that right.

If this is the case, and aqbanking is gone from the deps, do I get the
+1s back again, heh?

Yeah, and even worse is my trying to upgrade goffice at the same time.
Yay breakage! Don't worry though, I'll get it

PS This is a huge amount of discussion for this package. It's kinda neat.
