Re: split the Replaces field

Actually, a Pre-Conflicts field might be better.

Any packages named in Pre-Conflicts would be removed prior the package
being installed.

Its effect on the exisiting Conflicts would be that the special exemption
allowing packages to Conflict with itself, or packages it provides could
be removed, or rather moved to pre-conflicts.

The second usage of Replaces wouldnt be needed i dont think as packages
would conflict with each other, they would Pre-Conflcit with each other,
so it would be sorted out before the Replaces filed was required.

(maybe im overlooking something)
