Christian, I know that. Let me rephrase my question, I was probably not
clear enough. Is there a viable reason for libpanel-applet0 to replace
libpanel-applet-dev? The former does not provide the functionality of the
latter and it doesn't seem to be necessary to add the Replace:
libpanel-applet-dev to its control file, since that creates a confusion as
to the functionality provided by libpanel-applet0 and doesn't seem to be
necessary to remove (as per policy quoted in the other mail) the
libpanel-applet-dev package. In other words - wouldn't it be better if you
dropped the Replace: line from the libpanel-applet0 control file?
