I think the real question is, does shell *need* to be included in the dmd
package? My initial thoughts say no. But nonetheless you tend to run into these
sorts of conflicts when you install 3rd party software.

To give you the quick command, you can divert byobu's file using:

sudo dpkg-divert --local --package byobu --rename --add /usr/bin/shell

That will divert '/usr/bin/shell' to '/usr/bin/shell.distrib' for the byobu

You should be able to install DMD now...
