Yeah, agreed - and it will be up to us to keep that under control

I thought forcibly preventing overlapping installs was going to make it
unnecessarily hard to transition between rustc releases (in unstable),
however - so I made sure there were no actual file overlaps when doing the
package reorg.

(*)  I'm not super-concerned about this given the set of such packages that
will depend on the dylibs package (currently only rustc.deb itself, and
always expected to be small).

So you didn't observe any actual issues that required the Replaces/Breaks?
This is good.

.. Oh I see what you mean - you're worried about the old package versions
being installed.  Hrm, does apt's auto-remove features take care of this,
like it would for any other soname transition?
