An upgrade is the same as removing the old and installing the new
package, so other than maintainer script invocations (which will
differ if the old package was removed because of a conflict),
I don't see a difference. Of course, dpkg wouldn't let you a package
if it created a conflict, so yeah... no point...

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
