No reason, aside from that's the state the package was in when I first
adopted supertux.

If we were to change this, I'd be more inclined to go with Ubuntu's
approach here, i.e. package both and let users have the choice to
install one or both at the same time. In Ubuntu, they have
src:supertux which builds binary packages supertux and supertux-data
(from the 0.3.x branch), and src:supertux-stable which builds binary
packages supertux-stable and supertux-data-stable (from the 0.1.x
branch). No file conflicts are introduced (supertux 0.3.x installs
/usr/games/supertux2, whereas supertux 0.1.x installs

Cc-ing the debian-devel-games list for discussion. Does anyone have
any objections to the above?
