 You are right - Jan, can you please comment wether we should remove the
package all together (because it's non-installable at all because of
current dependency information) or if you want to update it with
documentation how to work around the issue.  From what I understand
explicitly "reinstalling rails-ruby1.8 and rails" would fix the issue.

 I think the best option currently is to prominently document it in
NEWS.Debian and the changelog, and it seems that debconf handling is
there, so adding a urgent note about the issue would also be
appropriate (display for upgrades, not for new-installs).

 Please ask for review of your changes prior to the upload, I'm willing
to look through them so we don't stumble into any side-effect because of
the rather unusual deeper changes here.
