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  empty, obsoleted by libMagickCore6_2

libMagicCore6  empty, obsoleted by libMagickCore6_2

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