The problem is that di-utils-mkswap depends on the damn busybox-cvs
package and the current netcfg conflicts with busybox-cvs. But since
anna doesn't handle conflicts, the system gets broken. It feels like a
horrible mistake to add that busybox-cvs dependency to di-utils-mkswap
without making sure that busybox-cvs works with the rest of d-i. A quick
fix would be to upload a new di-utils, leaving us with a broken mkswap
(like before). The long-term fix is to fix the damn busybox packages so
there are no damn conflicts.

We need to coordinate and communicate better, damn it.
