web-sys provides an insane number of features, debcargo's workaround for
the lack of version range dependencies in dpkg blows that up even more.
So we can't ship all the provides that debcargo generates while staying
within the realms of what the archive will allow.

But that doesn't mean we can't add back provides that we actually do
want/need for reverse dependencies.
