Forcing the upgrade would deprive the users of options.  They might not
find out what happened until _after_ their package has been replaced
this way, and they might not have an old version around to downgrade to.

I think just removing it is the best thing to do.  Then it will show
up as "obsolete/local" in dselect, and they can upgrade when they choose
to.  It would help to make celestia mention openuniverse in its
description, or conflict & replace with it.
