Well- your test passed with flying colors! (sync896 now). However, I
figured this was a false positive, and looking at the debug log
confirmed it. So I added sync895 as well, which fails bad now, as it
performs the upgrade even though it breaks dependencies. It is exactly
as you said above, however, the new package (pkgC) does NOT provide
foo, and thus should fail. It doesn't.
