That's the approach I'd advocate.  Fileutils being a debianized version
of the fileutils package from upstream, and color-ls being a separate
package with an alternative to fileutils-ls.

That gets us back to Richard Kettlewell's question when he offered to
produce a color-ls package:  "doeS aNyBody know how should I arrange
for this to interact sensibly with the fileutils package?"
