It seems that util-linux now conflicts with mount.
Several packages depend on mount, including sysvinit, which sends
my packages into a cascading frenzy of deinstalls.

Sorry if this has been discussed and I missed it.
Shouldn't util-linux Provides: mount if it Conflicts: it?

Wouldn't help, we don't have versioned provides. In any event, replacing an essential package is a dangerous action, and I have made a util-linux NMU that splits mount into its own package again.
