Perhaps a fonts-liberation1 and fonts-liberation2 that "Breaks:" each 
other and both provide the same virtual package? Ideally the virtual 
package would be called fonts-liberation, but this is taken by the 
current non-virtual package. I do not know the cleanest way to handle a 
transition from a non-virtual to a virtual package. This might require 
the advice of an apt guru.

Splitting out the condensed (I think they call it narrow?) font might be 
unnecessary complexity at this stage.

Kind regards,
