okay.  i'll make sure the BTS entries have information reflecting
i think "eventually" it would be nice to be able to have both packages
installed and only one enabled (using diversions,alternatives, or just
some maintscript logic to prevent installing the second one), but this
is more complicated and not as important given thatt here are possible
workarounds already.
