Default Bug#598189: initramfs-tools: should not ask me to uninstall in-use packages

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.98.3
Severity: normal


I just got this:

WARNING: grub and lilo installed.
Please deinstall unused bootloader.

There is nothing wrong with having both grub and lilo installed, and I
happily use both. Please do not enforce the "you can only install packages
while you actively use them" rule, that road down lies insanity ("please
don't install xfsprogs and reiserfsprogs at the same time" etc.).

If the problem is that it cannot decide which bootloader to run, maybe the
message could be reworded to that effect instead of asking me to uninstall
programs I depend on.
