Ah, that part of the changelog was written while we still were trying to ship
both spacefun and joy, but it turned out to be an even uglier diff and seemed
better to just remove spacefun.

I think what really triggered that bug was the 12.06.1 version shipped both
spacefun and joy, but only removed spacefun.
I did consider the additional postrm call suggested, but it generated lintian
warnings; it seems like there is not real consensus on how to handle
"update-alternatives --remove" so I followed the path that seemed to actually
fix the bug that didn't produce lintian warnings and complies with policy as it
Thanks for the ever-villigent review!
