xserver-xorg (old) Pre-Depends: x11-common (>= 1:7.3+3)

xserver-xorg (new) Pre-Depends: x11-common (>= 1:7.3+3)
                   Conflicts: x11-common (<< 1:7.3+11)

x11-common (old)   no relation to xserver-xorg afaics

x11-common (new)   Conflicts: xserver-xorg (<< 1:7.3+11)

This change is making an upgrade overly complicated, and apt couldn't
figure it out here.  I had to dpkg -r --force-depends xserver-xorg, then
install the new x11-common, then install the new xserver-xorg.

There's probably a better way to achieve what we want here.
