no, old package: grafix
    new packages: grafix1 and grafix-dev

grafix1 and grafix-dev can be installed together (as it should be)

grafix-dev depends on grafix1

The only problem is that when installing grafix-dev, the old package
"grafix" might still be installed -> file clash. Therefore grafix1
as well as grafix-dev should Conflict: grafix.

| Replaces: foo
