The EMBOSS and EMBASSY packages are released together each year on the 15th of
July (and sometimes the 15th of January). In my experience, upstream does not
support the use of EMBASSY packages that were not released together with the
EMBOSS packages.

I do not think that our EMBOSS users expect us to provide a compatibility
that upstream does not.

I can add ‘Breaks: embassy-domalign << 0.1.0+20100721-1~, embassy-domainatrix
<< 0.1.0+20100721-1~, embassy-domsearch << 0.1.0++20100721-1~, embassy-phylip
<< 3.69+20100721-1~, emboss << 6.3.1-5~’ to the libajax6, libnucleus6 and
emboss-lib packages, and keep the versions up to date when upstream will
release a new version. This will avoid users making mixtures that are not
