And *I'm* being precise when I said "foo 1.0" is removed and not 
replaced.  A package is not its consituent files.  It represents the 
potential for running it.  That is removed and not replaced (until you 
fix it).

Dpkg does not "fix it."  Thus it removes it.

His definition of "replace" is vacuous.  You can't run the program, so 
fat lot of good the files being replaced does.
