Bug#592899: cdebconf: please move newt frontend to its own binary package
cdebconf currently depends on libnewt and libslang2 because of the newt
On Sid both libraries together require more than two MB disk space:
$ dpkg -s libslang2 libnewt0.52 | egrep 'Package:|Installed-Size:'
Please consider splitting the package to get rid of these dependencies
in minimal installations.
I thought about something similar to debconf-i18n and debconf-english:
Depends: cdebconf-newt | cdebconf-tiny, ...
This will of course only become relevant after it became possible to
replace debconf with cdebconf.
