Over an hour I've been searching in vain, apparently using broken Google-fu, for
something using examples to explain how to prevent unwanted package(s) from
being installed via pinning when apt-mark's hold is being disregarded. Anyone
familiar with an URL that would do this?

In openSUSE, it's a simple process:

	zypper al unwantedpackagename[version]

That's all there is to it, other than it also works with wildcards.

#dpkg-hold 'package-name'
#dpkg-unhold 'package-name'
