If you followed the instructions in the mail I replied to, the installed
packages are left with a dependency on x264 and not libx264.

The real problem is that the few times I tried to use automated update
methods ran into problems because x264 was already installed and libx264
couldn't be installed because they conflicted.  Nothing seems to be
in UPDATING or MOVED so the upgrades break.  There needs to be a better
way of handling these cases.
