Marcelo explained and I restated that they shouldn't conflict, because
the following packages would belong to libmpeg:
libmpeg1, libmpeg2, libmpeg3, etc.
and the following packages would belong to libmpeg3:
libmpeg3-1, libmpeg3-2, libmpeg3-3, etc.
So they clearly won't clash literally. Are you arguing that they could
possibly be mistaken for the other?
