I believe this dependency is added because the documentation states
somewhere that udebs should list all their dependencies with no
exceptions.  I interpret this to mean that udebs should depend on
libc-udeb.  If this is wrong, the documentation should be changed.

Why isn't libc-udeb recorded as already installed?  No need to
download it if it is already installed, right?
