All of the MTA's provide mail-transport-agent. I had assumed that apt
would choose between them on the basis that exim4-daemon-light is the
only provider with priority standard, the others being optional or extra.
If apt does not consider package priorities in resolving disjunctions,
a possible solution would be for apt to do so.
