The current discover package contain the same files as the new
discover1 package.  They can not be installed at the same time.  I'm
not sure about the >=2 stuff.  As for discover1 vs discover2, I
suspect at least the discover2-data package to contain some of the
same files as discover1-data.  One of the discover2 packages contain
the /etc/discover.conf file, so we need a conflict there as well.

I suspect all this will be weeded out when we start testing. :)

Yes, I will rename the packages, but leave the files and directories
in the packages as they are.

The point with the changes it to replace the 'discover' debs in sid
with discover version 2.  The udebs stay the same, so debian-installer
should not be affected by the move.
