I have asked help in debian-devel@ (but forgot the Cc). But your
solution seems good in fact. I didn't think it in this way. This seems
equivalent to the current situation where someone installs roundcube
From scratch and get roundcube-mysql unless it explicitely installs
roundcube-pgsql. If I don't get any answer tomorrow in debian-devel@, I
will implement your solution.
