Postgresql-dev requires libpgsql, which conflicts with libpq1 but not with
postgres95... yes, I agree that it would be better to make the conflicts
more general.  I will make libpgsql conflict with postgres95 as well.

  I don't see bible-kjv-text conflicting with
  >anything; it should probable Replace older versions of bible-kjv.

The control file has:
Package: bible-kjv-text
Architecture: any
Depends: ${shlibs:Depends},bible-kjv
Conflicts: (bible-kjv << 4.00-5)

but I agree that dselect doesn't report this conflict.  I don't know why not.
