This seems like a result of some "questionable" packaging decisions...
if you packaged as:


Then you simply make gtk-engines-mist obsolete gnome-themes-mist (I'm
pretty sure dpkg has the "obsoletes" concept.) Different package names
so version comparisons don't matter.

But since in the end, version numbers are arbitrary. So if it would make
some people's life easier, it seems we should bump gtk-engines up to
GNOME versioning?


(Note, I no longer have any maintainership role in gtk-engines)
