Aus der Debian-Policy:

7.5.1. Overwriting files in other packages

     Firstly, as mentioned before, it is usually an error for a package to
     contain files which are on the system in another package.

     However, if the overwriting package declares that it `Replaces' the
     one containing the file being overwritten, then `dpkg' will replace
     the file from the old package with that from the new.  The file will
     no longer be listed as "owned" by the old package.
