Hmm... I don't see an attempt to do that. Perhaps things were confused
by some of the remove tokens remaining?

Ok. I adjusted things to keep the old soversion and set !ready and this
seems to have moved the right things to the right places.
Note that there does seem to be a difference between these libraries,
and between x86 and x86_64:
libMagicCore6 188.8.131.52-3 empty, obsoleted by libMagickCore6_2
libMagicCore6 184.108.40.206-4 empty, obsoleted by libMagickCore6_2

I guess we need a better way to deal with these things.
