Okay, well if no one screams that's going into debianutils. A warning: changing that package in potato is going to be ... difficult, to say the least, more than once -- it's an Essential: package, and therefore everyone's boot disks will have to be rebuilt, and so on. We can get away with it once, but probably not more than that. So for XXXX's sake please check that what I've done is sane before I get larted two months down the line. c.
