I propose the following:
1) add an xfree86-4.3 package which will requires dpkg -r --force-depends
to upgrade from the 188.8.131.52 packages.
2) add an xfree86-upgrade package which installs a shell script that does
I have versions of these in experimental/jswhit (the shell script is not
made into a package yet, and the xfree86 package is for 184.108.40.2061 - but
I'm assuming it will be trivial to upgrade to 4.3 once it is tagged).
I could have the PatchScript tell people to install xfree86-upgrade and
use it if xfree86-4.2 is installed. But this obviously won't help for the
binary package. Adding a warning to PreInstScript won't work because the
install dies before it gets there.
