Yes there really does seem to be such a conflict. Putting in some 
clauses like

Breaks: libmysqlclient-dev (<< 5.5)
Replaces: libmysqlclient-dev (<< 5.5)

to the mysql-server-5.5 stanza should techincally fix it. However I 
worry that there is a deeper issue here. It seems to me that there is an 
ha_example.so in both mysql-server-5.5 and libmysqlclient-dev (>> 5.5) 
albeit different directories. That seems wrong to me. How did the 
ha_example.so file get to be in mysql-server-5.5.
