Bug#236780: No need to Conflict with xlib6

Package: xlibs
Version: 4.3.0-5
Severity: wishlist
Tags: sid

I mentioned this in #233818 already but I now suspect that the cases of xlib6
and xlib6g may differ in important respects so I am filing a separate report.

WordPerfect 8 works with xlib6, xpm4.7 and libc5.  Until release 4.3 of
xfree86 I had these installed and marked "hold" and I had no problem.
Now I have installed xlibs 4.3.0 which Conflicts with xlib6 and forces it
off my system.  I don't see the reason for this.  xlib6 installs files in
/usr/i486-linuxlibc1/ so there is no pathname collision with anything in
current xfree86 packages.  When I remove (but don't purge) xlibs and
install xlib6 then everything including WP8 works fine again.  

It may be objected that WP8 is not free software, etc., but I need to keep
the program around so that I can convert old files in WP formats to formats
readable by OOo.  So, unless there is some good reason why xlib6 should be
forced off the system, I would like xlibs to refrain from Conflicting with it.
