    The problem you and all gNS users observe when they do
    `aptitude|apt-get install xv' stems from the fact that the `xv'
    package (which does not exist in the repository) is declared in
    x11-common's Conflicts:.  The reliable way to fix this is to rebuild
    the `xorg' source package, altering the x11-common's stanza by
    removing `xv' from the Conflicts field.

Another way is to define a list of suppressed packages,
and set up apt-get so that it disregards anything that other packages
say about those suppressed packages.

This is easy and modular.
