I decided that dropping the Provides altogether was the best approach.
For one thing, the old language packs being obsoleted weren't the real
language packs; they only contained translations for the installation
code.  For another, they were in the wrong place, so they didn't work
anyway.  Hence, it is unlikely that anybody actually used them.

Thanks, Ville.
