Bug Description

Dear Friends,

I'm trying to separate different issues so that the developers have an easy time solving them.

This was reported in:

$ aptitude show wine1.4

Conflicts: wine1.0, wine1.0, wine1.4
Breaks: ttf-symbol-replacement, ttf-symbol-replacement,
        ttf-symbol-replacement-wine1.3, ttf-symbol-replacement-wine1.3,
        ttf-tahoma-replacement (< 1.3), ttf-tahoma-replacement (< 1.3), wine (<
        1.2.1), wine (< 1.2.1), wine1.2 (< 1.4-0ubuntu1), wine1.2 (<
        1.4-0ubuntu1), wine1.3 (< 1.4-0ubuntu1), wine1.3 (< 1.4-0ubuntu1)
Replaces: ttf-symbol-replacement, ttf-symbol-replacement,
          ttf-symbol-replacement-wine1.3, ttf-symbol-replacement-wine1.3,
          ttf-tahoma-replacement, ttf-tahoma-replacement, wine, wine, wine1.0,
          wine1.0, wine1.2, wine1.2, wine1.3, wine1.3

Same thing in the GUI:

i A --\ wine1.4 1.4-0ubuntu1 1.4-0ubuntu4

Updated patch to exclude more instances of the implicit relations (such as in reverse depends and version lists).

At the moment this will not be included upstream as the implicit relations are important to show why a package may be broken, or select valid alternatives. A better solution is being sought.
