The thing I have never understood is why it split into a myriad of
different .deb files while it really only needs to be the following:

* lazarus.deb
* fpc.deb
* fpc-source.deb

and maybe even alternatively for lazy people like me something like

* lazarus-complete.deb (provides: lazarus, fpc, fpc-source)

I'm not sure about the exact entries in the deb control files (provides,
depends, replaces, etc.) to achieve this magic but I think it should be
possible, shouldn't it?
