Consider that I'm going to keep the old binary as a transitional
package, anyway, so probably the workaround won't be needed anymore at
all and can just be dropped once lo-dicts is fixed?
(note that I don't know what the exception does).

Bug description:

  Installing the Galician language via Language Support fails. The
  reason is that there is currently two hunspell spellchecking packages
  in the archive:

  * hunspell-gl-es, provided by the hunspell-gl-es source package
  * hunspell-gl, provided by the libreoffice-dictionaries source package

  Even if hunspell-gl-es conflicts to hunspell-gl, having both of them
  available in the archive is not compatible with the way the writing
  aids is pulled via Language Selector. The proposed upload in this PPA:


  drops the hunspell-gl binary from libreoffice-dictionaries.

  [Test Case]

   * Open Language Support
   * Try to install Galician

  [Regression Potential]

  language I get this notification:

   The following packages have unmet dependencies:


  Then nothing happens. Several fellows got the same issue.
