Actually, no. It'd be better to remove alternative in the prerm as
before, but without installing it in the postinst. This way we will
still provide /usr/bin/tclsh if only tcl8.5 is installed when weezy is
upgrading to jessie. When user will install tcl this alternative will
be removed in tcl's preinst.
