just saw this..

i got hit by the removal of tepfile(1); pv-grub-menu uses it in its
postint script and its removal started blocking my apt upgrades.  i had
to copy tempfile over from a virt stuck on an older deb to get around it.

(cf https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=996101)

it would be useful to ensure no packages rely on something before
removing it...
