A virtual package is normally used when two packages provide similar 
functionality, and the user can chose which package to install, and it 
will "provide" the virtual package that other packages will depend upon. 
It is also used in other complicated transitional arrangements. But this 
is a simple case of moving files from one package to another, for which 
a breaks/replaces is normally sufficient. See:

Perfect, that was what I was missing. A changelog entry (or a separate 
bzr commit & message) would have helped :-)

No problems. I think a simpler diff (only the default settings changes) 
will be easier to review and generate less questions/delay from the 
sponsor. And it will get us the new theme. It is pretty simple to replay 
the commits back in later.
