why does e2fsprogs-bf even need to conflict with e2fsprogs or be
uninstallable at all? why not just install all of its binaries/libs in
say /usr/lib/e2fsprogs-bf/{bin,sbin,lib}

we could just add a kludge to boot-floppies to move the files into the
correct locations.  boot-floppies is full of cruft anyway and is EOL
so whats a bit more cruft...

after boot-floppies goes away this package can too since the correct
way to do this kind of package is a .udeb.
