The dependency was dropped in 0.10.40-4 (which you can install from
testing) at the same time the package was split using a double mutual
dependency. I know this is not optimal but the other alternatives were
even worse.

I still think we need a new dpkg field for package splits.

For example, gettext-el could have a field "Previously-In: gettext" so that
"apt-get upgrade" knows which packages have to be installed when
upgrading in order not to lose existing functionality.
