    I forgot to also say that it does work to install the old
    libraries. Those conflicts aren't "real" conflicts so it's safe to
    run that script (as far as I know). This should allow os2007
    applications to at least load and probably run successfully if it
    doesn't depend on too much other os2007 stuff.

    On a side note, I don't find it particularly nice for packages to
    use fake conflicts to force the removal of non-conflicting
    packages. There should be another way of asking the user whether
    they want to keep older packages.
