Bug#344414: vim-runtime: vimtutor moving from -common to -runtime causes problems

Package: vim-runtime
Version: 1:6.4-004+2
Severity: normal

Unpacking replacement vim-runtime ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/vim-runtime_1%3a6.4-004+2_all.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/vimtutor', which is also in package vim-common
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

This was fixed by simply asking aptitude to retry installing
vim-runtime, but it's still ugly.

vim-runtime should probably conflict with older versions of the -common
