Packages pulled from potato, first sweep

I have removed these packages (see below) from potato.  They are all still
in woody.  I've also installed or rejected most of the uploads for potato.
I'm holding task-parallel-computing and I'm still thinking about nedit.

I plan to do more of this on Monday, and perhaps Sunday if I can get
net access then.  I don't have as much time as I expected, though, so
the test cycle may be delayed by another day.

I hope to end up with only a short list of RC bugs in packages that we
really can't do without.  If it's short enough, I may call for specific
uploads to be made and wait up to three days for them.  Otherwise, we'll
have to have another test cycle that we know won't become a release -- oh well.

(The ones I'm thinking of are emacs20, gdb, gpm, glibc, pdl, ssh, sysvinit,
and util-linux -- I hope the list can be shortened because not all of those
look release-critical.)
