As usual, I modified the patch slightly in my git repo (I added a  
missing '\n'), so review it instead of ML's one.

One more thing, that I didn't emphasize earlier, but I should have:
When I finally voted to this implemented behavior of replacements, I  
kept in mind that many users have testing repo "enabled". But if you  
accept my proposed behavior, there is a (small?) limitation on  
distro/packager side: If you want to replace bar with a set of  
packages (for example, you split it into libbar and bar-ui), you  
_must_ put them into the same repo. If libbar is put into core, bar-ui  
is put into extra, only one replacement will be asked from user (the  
question is depend on his repo priority). Imho this is not a big  
limitation, but I must speak now.
