Thanks Bas. My sid VM was busted, so that wasted yesterday evening.
Unfortunately I am busy today and tomorrow, so I will take a look at
that and your commits on Sunday probably. I need to study what you did
with the symbols to better prepare for my promise to draft something for
the policy (something to do at Christmas!).

After I pushed and went to bed the other night, I realised that I should
probably look into whether we still need the "Provides". That was done
earlier when creepy & subsurface were also Reverse Dependencies. But I
will re-look in the light of what you say about the package names (both
Andreas and I thought it was overly complicated way back anyway).
