But current dependency definition does not provide this path...
libpoppler3 should "Suggests: poppler-data". (I vaguely think we can not
do "Recommends:" here due to policy.)

I think we still have time to fix dependency only fix uploads and ask
for hinting to get into lenny.  As for divert, it seems we do not need
it.  I have all package installed here.

Issue is they are located in different location.

I just uploaded newer package from with minimal fix. 
   libpoppler2 -> libpoppler3
