It's rather late in the release cycle to be cleaning up things like
that… but since it's being pulled due to:
  [others] → udev (Priority:important → propcs (Priority:important)
  man-db (Priority:standard) → bsdmainutils
  openssh-client → libedit2

I think we should be able to do that nonetheless. Adding debian-cd@ to
the loop to make sure this wouldn't break image building and stuff we
need to put into various images.
