   Add Breaks: to ffado-tools.

   According to policy 7.6.1, Breaks is required to inform the package
   manager to remove older packages upon upgrades.

   This hopefully does the trick.

I believe Breaks should be used _instead_ of Replaces to have its
intended benefit.

Don't we have exactly the example as mentioned in

  <http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-relationships.html#s7.6.1>?

Oh, forget my comment: I was wrongly reading it as a combination of Breaks and Conflicts. Breaks and Replaces go well together.

We had a lousy premiere here in Budapest where I am at currently, and some drinks afterwards. I will get some sleep now instead of trying to think straight.
