Package: apt
Version: 0.3.13
Severity: normal

Hello 

I just wanted to install smb2www without having a httpd daemon installed.
apt-get install now tried to get apache, roxen, dhttpd etc...
just because smb2www depends on "httpd" (virtual) which is provieded by
EACH of the ones above.

Just getting one should be enough. I know, maybe this is a bug by design
but then getting the first or even FAIL is better than getting all and 
try to resolv the conflicts afterwards.

bye,
