  Yes, but if you have fetchmail-ssl installed and not fetchmail, an upgrade 
will not install fetchmail.  It might result in fetchmail-ssl being removed 
(since the new fetchmail-common doesn't provide the version it needs), but 
unless some other part of the system depends on fetchmail, you won't end up 
with fetchmail installed.
