Bug#375568: busybox-static should include "Provides: busybox"

Package: busybox-static
Severity: normal


when I try to install busybox-static, then the already installed
package busybox gets removed. This is ok.
But: all packages depending on "busybox" also get removed (e.g.
initramfs-tools) - even if this should not be necessary - right?

One solution would - of course - to change the dependencies of
initramfs-tools (and other packages). But as busybox-static really has
the same features as busybox, a "Provides" entry should be more

What do you think?
