Upgrading from the current sarge ssh package in a dist-upgrade to etch
caused ssh to break.
Here is a segment of the apt-get dist-upgrade output:

icon extension from .desktop file (closes:
[ Colin Watson ]
* Drop versioning on ssh/ssh-krb5 Replaces, as otherwise it isn't
sufficient to replace conffiles (closes: #402804).
* Make GSSAPICleanupCreds a compatibility alias for
GSSAPICleanupCredentials. Mark GSSUseSessionCCache and
GSSAPIUseSessionCredCache as known-but-unsupported options, and migrate
away from them on upgrade.
* It turns out that the people who told me that removing a conffile in the
preinst was sufficient to have dpkg replace it without prompting when
moving a conffile between packages were very much mistaken. As far as I
can tell, the only way to do this reliably is to write out the desired
new text of the conffile in the preinst. This is gross, and requires
shipping the text of all conffiles in the preinst too, but there's
nothing for it. Fortunately this nonsense is only required for smooth
upgrades from sarge.
* debconf template translations:
- Add Romanian (thanks, Stan Ioan-Eugen; closes: #403528).
