Yes, but that requires making a new slink release, which takes
a bit of work.  That work is currently in progress.

In any case, surely it is better to have a CD with a broken w3-el
package than no CD at all.

For some values of "relatively".  The i386 tree, counting only main,
currently has 6 unsatisfied Depends relationships that I know of.
I can probably eliminate all but two of them before the release.
(The exeptions are libglide2-v3 depending on device3dfx-module,
which the user must build locally, and tkirc depending on ircii,
which is in non-US).

The other architectures will definitely release with a lot of
unsatisfied dependencies, due to the binary-all situation.
