That would be a solution but I have two packages with nearly the same
functionnalities. One is graphical or GUI or whatever you call it (uses
QT) and the other is in text mode or CLI or whatere you call it.

The two ITPs are #159749 and #159751.

I think it is informative to tell if it is a "graphical" or "text"
version in the one-line description.

note: I found 113 occurences of "GUI" in the one-line description on
unstable, and only ~10 with "text-mode" or 'textmode".
