Actually, I'd like to have a more formal definition of what a base
package is.  It's obviously not simply what's on the base disks as
netbase, netstd, dpkg-ftp are on the disks and in the net directory.

Maybe it should be exactly those packages that have required priority?
That seems to make more sense.  Opinions anyone?
