[Debian-med-packaging] Bug#465607: muscle: please declare Conflicts: muscle-doc

Package: muscle
Version: 3.70+fix1-1
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 6.6(4)

Could muscle please declare "Conflicts: muscle-doc"?  As it stands, it
merely declares "Provides: muscle-doc", which, while harmless and even
informative, serves little practical purpose given that muscle-doc's
only reverse dependency was muscle, which used to suggest it.  I'd
suggest a Replaces: declaration as well, but that's not as critical.
