We should check for file conflicts between packages in e.g. main and
non-free, shouldn't we? And let's just blame the contrib/non-free
package if this conflict is not solved properly :-)

Only for squeeze. wheezy and sid have separate Contents files for each area.

  -c contents -r main -r contrib -r nonfree

works for squeeze and reports 5 more pairs:

        fglrx-driver   xserver-xorg-core
        fglrx-glx-ia32 ia32-libs
        fglrx-glx      libgl1-mesa-glx
        fglrx-glx      libgl1-mesa-swx11
        unace          unace-nonfree

But how can I achieve this for sid?
