Bug Description

While upgrading my cosmic machine:

Preparing to unpack .../348-rustc_1.27.0+dfsg0+llvm-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking rustc (1.27.0+dfsg0+llvm-0ubuntu1) over (1.26.1+dfsg0+llvm-0ubuntu1) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /tmp/apt-dpkg-install-wbIzTD/348-rustc_1.27.0+dfsg0+llvm-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/rustlib/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/codegen-backends/', which is also in package libstd-rust-dev:amd64 1.26.1+dfsg0+llvm-0ubuntu1
dpkg-deb: error: paste subprocess was killed by signal (Broken pipe)

Apparently, the upgrade path for rustc and libstd-rust-dev needs to be handled more carefully.
