Package: loop-aes-utils
Version: 2.12r-11
Severity: important

loop-aes-utils diverts /bin/mount et al. I realise this is kind of the
entire purpose of the package, but I just happened to mention it in the
hearing of the author of dpkg who said "it is strictly forbidden to
divert any of the essential components of an Essential package; the
reason for this is that if there is a failure at the critical moment
then your system will be unbootable".

Could you please find some other way to do this?
