I had this mail lying around in my TODO list and nwo I'm mostly ready
to give this a try.

Guys, do you think we want to manage a transition for, say
ttf-freefont-udeb->fonts-freefont-udeb (with transitional package,
etc. as we did for the ttf->fonts transitions)....or will we just
replace the package (given that only the installer is using the udeb)
