Has it given you any real problem? Note that there was a wireshark
package before, and both the -cli and -gtk versions later replaced
that original package. The -qt version is new.

This is a technique for replacing packages (you have to conflict at
the same time). Any new packages introduced in the split, such as the
qt one, do not need replacements as they simply did not exist before.
