I think libmp3lame0 (which is meant to replace liblame0) now conflicts
with liblame0 without 'providing' it (squibbly Debian packaging
explanation goes here)

Setting --force-depends seems to break everything, as apt now
understands conflicts set up in dpkg - installing Pd-extended using
--force-depends means that I can no longer update or install other

As I understand it, libmp3lame is a drop-in replacement for liblame, so
either the Provides: liblame0 flag needs to be set in libmp3lame0 or
Pd-extended should be compiled against the newer package. But I am by no
means an Ubuntu or Debian maintainer!
