split the Replaces field

The replaces field serves two purposes, one to allow a package to replace
the files of another package, and the second purpose to replace whole

It would be cleaner if there were two different fields to be used, e.g.
Replaces-files and Replaces-packages or something like that.

Its always seemed strange to me that a package can both conflict with and
provide another package, Replaces-package could imply conflicts and
provides also.
