[DRE-maint] Bug#479502: file conflicts between packages

Package: libcommandline-ruby1.8, libopen4-ruby1.8
Severity: serious
Justification: policy violation


both libcommandline-ruby1.8 and libopen4-ruby1.8 ship
but do neither conflict, nor add a diversion, thus fail to be installed in the
same environment:

 > Unpacking libopen4-ruby1.8 (from .../libopen4-ruby1.8_0.9.6-1_all.deb) ...
 > dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libopen4-ruby1.8_0.9.6-1_all.deb (--unpack):
 >  trying to overwrite `/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open4.rb', which is also in package libcommandline-ruby1.8

 > Errors were encountered while processing:
