Actually packages only uninstall some file if it was part fo a
previous package which is being uninstalled in the upgrade process. In
this sense an old package is being uninstalled while a new one is
being installed.

So no, if a user placed libmythweather.so somewhere and a package is
just installed w/o removing an old package that file will not be
removed, it will be overwritten at best if the package ships its own

I probably do so, yes. But I didn't actively change this in the
packaging. If it's the developers' wish to have it bettr removed I'll
turn it off in the next package update.

He probably has something under /usr/local which wins over /usr.
