Apparently for one thing, it's about some kind of package
conflicts'ISH with GIMP GNU Image Manipulation Program. Via "apt-get
install --dry-run" mypaint-data, I received the following:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  gimp gimp-ufraw libmypaint-1.3-0 libmypaint-common
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 4 to remove and [yada-yada large
packages] not upgraded.

If you didn't have GIMP installed, that wouldn't have hit your radar.

Speaking as a GIMP fan nearly since their first days, OUCH!! :)
