There was a problem in 3.4j-0.1 with xpm4g conlicting with xpm4.7 and
xpm4 providing xpm4.7 and depending on xpm4g, but that was corrected in
3.4j-0.2, uploaded yesterday. Some problems remain though...

These are the problems I was talking about before... I don't know yet
how to provide a versioned xpm4.7 (I've been told Provides: xpm4.7 (3.4j-0.2)
doesn't work), and versioned dependencies are not fulfilled with 
Provides: xpm4.7
