Replaces: and virtual packages?


I thought having a package with

        Provides: compress
        Replaces: compress

would be like

        Provides: compress
        Conflicts: compress

except that the conflict will not appear and I hoped that when the package
was installed any previous package providing compress would be removed

Obviously it does not work. Is this because of virtual packages, or did
I not understand Replaces:?
