Hi Michael,

I will just remove the replaces array in python2-imaging-alt. It's not
appropriate/required for the package nowadays anyway.

I agree python2-imaging should be deleted or merged into
python2-imaging-alt, since when a user installs python2-imaging the
next time they go to system update pacman of course offers to replace
it with python2-pillow. (Yes I know they /could/ just use IgnorePkg=
in pacman.conf)
