Assume there is a package 'foo' installed. The maintainer decides to improve the package (with a higher version/revision) which is now called 'foo-better', which provides and replaces 'foo'.
Fink does not recognize that 'foo' is out-dated and could be upgraded to 'foo-better'. The user needs to explicitly install 'foo-better', which then will 'upgrade' the outdated 'foo' package with the virtual (provided) 'foo'. It would be nice if Fink would be clever enough to do this upgrade automatically.
