curious.  does it use autoup or just mention it?

did you include my patch to fix the "allow overwrite" option? it's
a simple one line addition....i've just made the change manually
on every system i have installed it on. it is needed on systems
running recent versions of dpkg (since i believe) which have
--refuse-overwrite by default.  The previous behaviour was to have
--force-overwrite as the default.  My patch makes it work correctly
regardless of what dpkg's default behaviour is.

i didn't post it directly to you, but to debian-devel back in Feb.

here's what i wrote back then:

I had to modify /usr/lib/dpkg/methods/install after dpkg got upgraded to so that the "allowoverwrite=1" option still worked.
