At the moment, different schemes of version/build numbering are pretty in the way:
condor-7.8.6-73238-deb_6.0_amd64.deb vs condor_7.8.2~dfsg.1-1+deb7u1_amd64.deb

Even with identical Condor versions, it's hard to prefer the Wheezy native Debian
one over the Squeeze package I have to keep for my older machines.
