I'd say make two binary packages, one non-X + .slc files, and one with just
xjed that depends on the non-X one.

I say this because I've got a couple of non-X (or should be non-X) systems
where I've got jed installed precisely because it's lightweight.  Having to
have xlib6g is an annoyance (though not a terribly big one).

On the other hand, we used to have emacs and emacs-nox, and those eventually
got merged because it was determined that the xlib wasn't too big a demand
to make.
