Yes, I seemed to remember that this was the case, but couldn't find
anything in my mailbox about it. :)  If you can upload a new version
that Provides: libfam0c102 (you will still need to Conflicts: and
Replaces: libfam0c102 as well, to avoid failures when trying to install
both at once), then this bug pleasantly becomes a non-issue.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
