Good point.  I will do that.  I'll see if I can get the scripts for
it running today; otherwise it'll have to be next week.  And once
I add bo I can just as easily add rex.  (I still have it on CD)

I'm afraid the general problem of comparing every package against
every previous version of every other package is intractable.  I hope
dpkg's handling of overlaps when --force-overwrite is dropped will be 
somewhat similar to its handling of explicit conflicts.  (Which is
the safest way of handling overlaps).
