Hi Andreas! We the qt-kde team, maintainers of the package, would like to avoid this approach. We suspect it's a subtle bug somewhere else or a bug in apt. Sune was trying to get David Kalnischkies to help us in this. In our opinion, the transitional package should be left as a last resort. Reintroducing it may confuse users to think they have the xine backend installed, and we will receive lots of "it doesn't works" bugs, even if it's marked as a transitional package. Of course, if no other fix can be achieved, then we will have no other choice.
