[Pkg-scicomp-devel] Bug#516689: undeclared conflicts with python-vtk

Package: paraview
Version: 3.4.0-2
Severity: serious

Trying to install the newest paraview (3.4.0-2) fails because it
includes /usr/bin/vtkpython, also in package python-vtk.

My initial reaction is that paraview should not be shipping this file.
I'm guessing it's there because paraview builds its own VTK.  If
paraview actually needs vtkpython, the safest bet would be to install
it hidden away in a private directory, IMHO.

Thanks for packaging paraview!
