[debian-mysql] Bug#570816: --purge mysql-server-5.0 after upgrading to 5.1 stops new server

Package: mysql-server-5.0
Severity: normal


bitten by this the 2nd time (couldn't remember my other bug 550994 since
it's been some time), and it's actually Debian upgrade process that
tells me to purge mysql-server-5.0 (sysv-rc when trying to convert to
dependency-based boot says "package mysql-server-5.0 removed but not 
purged"), so this is even more annoying.

So please fix this behavior, thanks!
