Bug#827562: use Depends: | rather than Recommends:
The proposal here, downgrading Depends: to Recommends:, indeed doesn't work
that well because of reasons mentioned in the discussion.
However, this would be better: "Depends: light-locker | xscreensaver".
It will install light-locker by default where available, make task-xfce
installable on kfreebsd and hurd (where it is the default desktop!), and
allow people to go with xscreensaver without having to manage packages
marked as auto.
light-locker suffers from a number of problems that make the decision of
designating it as the default quite puzzling.
u-boot problems can be solved with the help of your old SCSI manuals, the
parts that deal with goat termination. You need a black-handled knife, and
an appropriate set of candles (number and color matters). Or was it a
silver-handled knife? Crap, need to look that up.
