i'm not sure if this is something i've done wrong, but ...
$ sudo apt-get install libwpd-tools

You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libwpd-tools: Depends: libwpd-stream8c2a (>= 0.8.10) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
um, ok ...
$ apt-cache show libwpd-stream8c2a

... snip ...
i don't understand why that second package isn't processed as a
dependency, unless that version string is somehow not being recognized
correctly. did i screw something up here?
