Re: If *-module depends on *-utils, should *-source recommend it?

I used equivs to make a package "foo", version 1.0, and installed it.
I used equivs to make a package "foo", version 2.0, which depend on 
"bar", which doesn't exist.  Tried to install it with dpkg -i.
It failed.

/var/lib/dpkg/status contains:
Package: foo
Version: 2.0
Config-Version: 1.0
Depends: bar

/usr/share/doc/foo/changelog.gz contains:
foo (2.0) unstable; urgency=low

It looks to me like the files for "foo version 1.0" have been
clobbered, at least in /usr/share/doc/foo/

Where are the unpacked files for foo 2.0 kept where they
are not clobbering the foo 1.0 files?
