erlang-base conflicts with old erlang-doc-html

Bug Description

Binary package hint: erlang-base

erlang-base conflicts with any version of erlang-docs-html older than itself. This is sort of a cute trick for making sure that your docs are up to date, but since erlang-doc-html is a separate source package, it creates the potential for the two packages to get out of sync, making erlang-doc-html uninstallable.

This happened in Jaunty - erlang was synced from Debian after the Debian Import Freeze (bug #331151), but erlang-doc-html wasn't pulled in as well.

I think that ideally I'd like to see erlang-doc-html synced into Jaunty as an SRU. If that's not possible, then the unsatisfiable conflict should be removed from erlang-base.

I'm happy to prepare the diffs for either, but I'd appreciate some input from motu-sru as to which approach they'd prefer.
