I don't understand this lintian complaint.
Maybe someone needs to deal with it:
I: libghc-parsec2-prof: conflicts-with-version libghc-parsec-prof (<< 3.0.0-5)
N: An earlier-than version clause is normally an indication that Breaks
N: should be used instead of Conflicts. Breaks is a weaker requirement that
N: provides the package manager more leeway to find a valid upgrade path.
N: Conflicts should only be used if two packages can never be unpacked at
N: the same time, or for some situations involving virtual packages (where
N: a version clause is not appropriate). In particular, when moving files
N: between packages, use Breaks plus Replaces, not Conflicts plus Replaces.
N: Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 7.4 (Conflicting binary packages -
N: Conflicts) for details.
N: Severity: normal, Certainty: wild-guess

Done. No major changes.

The above two paras need to be dealt with by someone else, as does
Joachim's #600287. I'll file an RFA presently referring to this post,
and then I'm pretty much done with Debian/Darcs.
