I know. There was discussion about that on the dpkg mailing list, IIRC.
Other packages had similar problems. The recommended solution was to
remove all and let u-a recreate the entries in postinst. My memory may
be bad here, though. Anyway, you're fix is a lot nicer. ;)

If you'd like to, feel free to do an 0-day NMU. If Sylvestre doesn't
have any objections, of course.

It would be cool if you could mail the debdiff, so that I can include it
in our repository. TIA!

Best regards
