The problem is, IIUC, that we can't use prerm/postinst to handle an
old buggy shishid if we at the same time have a shishi-kdc do:

Provides: shishid
Conflicts: shishid
Replaces: shishid

When I run dist-upgrade, dpkg will use the prerm from the old shishid
package, which fails, and there is no prerm from the "new" shishid,
because there is no new shishid.

One solution I see would be to provide an "empty" shishid with the
prerm, that depends on shishi-kdc, and remove the above
Provides/Conflicts/Replaces.  We can remove that package once the
package has been in testing for a couple of months.

What do you think?
