omniorb-dfsg provides replacement packages for all of the binary
packages in omniorb4.  It is my understanding from [0] that this makes
omniorb4 an orphan and therefore an explicit request is not required.
But not having much experience with this I might be wrong, so let me
know if I should file an explicit removal request anyway.
