This is now done, we now have unit packages co-installable. However, There is
still an issue with fp-compiler package. It contains some executables that are
installed in /usr/bin while is is MA same according to this report.

As far as I can see fpc-3.0.4, fpcmkcfg-3.0.4, and fpcres-3.0.4 are tools and
should be moved to fp-utils. In this case I'd make fp-compiler recommend fp-
Then there is grab_vcsa-3.0.4 which is a tool that is specific to video unit,
and that shall be installed by fp-units-base, but this is not my preference as
this just moves the problem to that package. I would rather move grab_vcsa-3.0.4 
to fp-utils, and make the fp-units-base recommend fp-utils (maybe not needed as
it recommends fp-compiler).

What do you think about this proposal?
