timezones (from hamm) declares that it "Replaces: timezone" and
"Conflicts: timezone". timezone: 7.48-3I from rex is "Essential: yes",
which is not the case in ver. 7.55-2 in bo. I thought dpkg would
happily replace timezone with with timezones, but it refuses. I'm not
familiar with the empty placeholder package concept. If it works, it
would certainly be an alternate to the solution now used in autoup.sh.
