Bug#592610: 7.3/7.4/7.6: Usage of Breaks and Conflicts unclear and contradictive


Specifically, Policy now allows use Breaks, not Conflicts if two packages has a file conflict. I consider it as a regression - a high-level package manager cannot assume anymore that two packages having Breaks can be installed (temporarily) without a file conflict, and IMO the whole purpose of Breaks (as opposed to Conflicts) is defeated.

Please not write policy to reflect currently existing problems in some high-level package managers which do wrong thing seeing 'Conflicts+Replaces'.
