Whatever apt considered to satisfy the dependency got installed ... if
it has to choose, it takes the "wrong" choice ;-P
That's why dependencies should always have a real package or a unique
virtual package as the first (or only) alternative. But ongoing
transitions are probably exempted :-)

OK, good to know, so I can save me some work - just remind me to rerun
all php packages once php is ready to be tortured again :-)

In case these transient bugs cause migration/removal problems, feel free
to downgrade the severity.
