Get the new fglrx-driver from unstable, it will use
glx-alternative-fglrx. This will allow you to switch between fglrx and
mesa libraries (update-alternatives --config glx).
Then you don't have to uninstall fglrx any longer to use radeon :-)
I'm not sure if you need to work around some kernel module blacklisting ...

if you have left any traces of libgl1-diversions or libglx-diversions,
purge them

Or fglrx. But from your initial mail I understood that you werent using
fglrx ...
