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.

Kinds regards, Lisandro.
