Jein. I understand that dpkg-divert is only a workaround. Generally
speaking it would be better if both packages would agree and use
the alternatives mechanism to do so.
Anyway, adding diversions is not difficult, issue dpkg-divert with
or without -h or --help and you'll experience a very easy syntax.
Packages using diversions are dpkg-multicd and file-rc. Please
think about it and issue 'grep dpkg-divert /var/lib/dpkg/info/*"
to find more packages using diversions.
If you come from outside of Finland, you live in wrong country.
