Upgrade Apache 2.0 to 2.2 would cause Plesk to be removed

    I'm trying to upgrade my Apache on our Ubuntu Dapper Drake server from 2.0 (with poor man's balancing) to 2.2 (with real load balancing) and have already tried quite a few routes (compiling Apache from sources, then symlinking the whole lot so that it appears to Plesk as the normal Debian installation, …), but none of them worked quite well. Then I stumbled on an article and thought I finally would have a foolproof way of upgrading Apache (using apt-get). However, I'm stuck on the last step (actually upgrading Apache), because the package manager wants to delete the Plesk files. I've been searching around for more than a week now, but nothing useful came up.

    OK, here's the progress so far:
    • I added the "deb http://packages.kodefoo.com/ dapper main" line to the /etc/apt/sources.list
    • apt-get update
    Now here is were it gets fishy and I am very reluctant to actually go on:
    • apt-get -s install apache2 apache2.2-common apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    The following extra packages will be installed:
    libapache2-mod-fcgid libapache2-mod-perl2
    The following packages will be REMOVED:
    apache2-common libapache2-mod-php4 libapache2-mod-python libapache2-mod-python2.4

    The following NEW packages will be installed:
    apache2 apache2.2-common
    The following packages will be upgraded:
    apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils libapache2-mod-fcgid libapache2-mod-perl2
    4 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 79 to remove and 56 not upgraded.

    From what I see, the upgrade would toss out everything Plesk related. Someone I consulted suspects the problem is that the plesk application is dependent on the apache2.0 packages, thus upgrading to apache2.2 causes plesk to be removed.
    Is there a way of avoiding the removal of these packages when upgrading apache so plesk doesn't become worthless?

    FYI, upgrading Plesk to the latest version (including all autoinstaller updates) doesn't solve the problem.
