Please clean the control code crap out of these before pasting them.

dpkg is too stupid to push directories in /var/lib/dpkg/info package.files
onto a stack and then pop the stack after all the regular files have been
removed.  Oh well.  The ironic thing is that by the time you go looking for
the thing it says it can't remove, it's figured out how to remove it.

Perfectly normal.  xpm4g has been gobbled up into xlib6g and everyone will
see stuff like this.

These are normal and self-explanatory.

This is my threat to other package maintainers.

Also expected.

I think maybe the old mesa packages need to ship the symlink so it can be
removed.  In any case, I need to ship a symlink or two of my own.

The following is really not useful and should have been pruned.

Please relax.  You might have a proper perspective on this if you'd tried
to "upgrade" from 3.3.6 to phase1v1 (or even phase1v12).
