That combination works fine here (obivously; I tested the packages before
uploading them). Does apt-get work OK?

Read #207400 for the status of apt-rpm merging work, which already had a
significant amount of source-level analysis done at the time that Joey
posted that message. There is a lot of other apt work out there that
probably could be merged (see #212732, #212734, #213465, #222271, and
others), but these things need to be taken one at a time. Feel free to
follow up to the various bugs with any work that you do in these areas.
