If it pidgin-evolution was previously in main package, then this
obsoletes is required. W/o this requires users may suffer from missing
functionality after upgrade.


* We need to split off p.-e, from pidgin
* We need to install both of them while upgrading (Obsoletes in
pidgin-evo) in order not to loose functionality.
* We need to not erase main pidgin (Obsoletes in pidgin)

With best regards, Peter Lemenkov.
