The problem with this kind of tests is that many packages build
conflicting packages. For example glade source package creates 'glade'
and 'glade-gnome' which are mutually exclusive.

There's also the 'replacing package' test when you're renaming packages
and providing a simple dummy transitional one. Those are important to
test but the above code will simply bail out on most cases.

I believe we're going to have some standardized control file teaching
the scripts what and how to test.

See ya,
