When we exchanged emails a while ago after your wishlist bug against
libmathlib1, I think you were intending to have the old blas/lapack/etc.
removed only after the release of Sarge. Is that still the case?
It would make things difficult for me if blas/lapack/atlas2 disappeared
now, since I would have to bump sonames on most of Cernlib, change
library package names, and somehow get the new binary packages through
NEW and into testing before the release. After Sarge, I have no objections.
As far as I'm concerned you can have lapack99 removed right now, since
it's not just one, but two sonames behind the current version.
