Both libs can co-exist, however, a user usually only wants the newest

Should I remove the Replaces line? Does this make life easier for
upgrades? I imagine the following:

 * A user now has libffado1 and jackd-someversion
 * dist-upgrade pulls in libffado2 and removes libffado1
 * jackd-firewire is broken, because it is linked against libffado1

Without the Replaces line, a user would still use libffado1 until we
upload a new jackd version depending on libffado2.

To me, removing Replaces seems reasonable, but I might miss something...
