I have one comment, the example command for file conflicts is a
little bit outdated:

Unpacking replacement <var>&lt;package-foo&gt;</var> ...
dpkg: error processing <var>&lt;package-name-for-foo&gt;</var>
 trying to overwrite `<var>&lt;some-file-name&gt;</var>',
 which is also in package <var>&lt;package-bar&gt;</var>

While I got this on my system (don't worry, I forced this by
tinkering with the dpkg database):

bounty:/var/lib/dpkg/info# LANG=C dpkg -i
(Reading database ... 167849 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking nano (from .../nano_2.0.2-1_amd64.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/nano_2.0.2-1_amd64.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/share/doc/nano/AUTHORS', which is also in
package vim-common
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
