Great ! I applied it.

Both but we need to make them very distinct. Let's call the little one
"Business Card CD" and the bigger one "NetInst CD".

Both of thoses should be fixed with the hack that I committed together.
I include udebs without checking dependencies, that means they won't be
rejected because of missing dependencies but also that existing
dependencies won't be included unless explicitely requested via the list
of packages (provided by the TASK variable). I hope this won't cause
unexpected problems.

As usual I didn't yet test what I committed. Any feedback is welcome ...
