Really pesky (and wrong!) upgrade sequence

Ignore the poppler thing for the most part, but:
1) the questions were extremely annoying (especially since you don't
know how many you have to answer). Not sure if we can do anything
here. If the package to be installed was constant, I'd say once you
agreed to it, we could assume you agree to it everywhere. Does this
hold if the package to be replaced is constant?
I'd say that the packaging is broken... I believe that only the main
libreoffice package should replace openoffice-base, and not every split
package. And libreoffice-sdk should replace openoffice-base-sdk, etc
2) I'm definitely not removing 14 packages, nor 4106.77 MB worth
either. This should be easily fixable.
That is removing more than I have installed on my system!
Anyway, I suppose there are genuine cases where multiple packages might
replace one package, so this is still something to fix.
