[pkg-fso-maint] Bug#591519: fso-frameworkd: Should support alternative GSM MUX daemons like fso-abyss

Package: fso-frameworkd
Severity: normal

fso-frameworkd depends on fso-gsm0710muxd, but discussion on the
pkg-fso-maint mailinglist indicates that really that daemon should only
(at best) be default and fallback on other implementations like

I suggest to do it through virtual packages (which as I understand it
need *not* conflict with each other).  That is, have fso-frameworkd
fallback on e.g. "fso-gsm-daemon" and have each daemon which provide the
appropriate ABI provide "fso-gsm-daemon".

This helps locate (through aptitude and potentially other smarter tools
in the future) possible alternatives.

Kind regards,

 - Jonas
