Re: mass bug filing against packages that don't remove alternatives

I'm planning to file bugs against all packages that currently leave
alternatives on the system after they were removed. Forgetting to
remove alternatives usually leaves dangling symlinks on the system and
in most cases these are dangling symlinks in /usr/bin
The problem with alternatives is that nobody knows how to handle them
correctly: see bug #71621 (no, I didn't forget the leading digit).
