Now that's a reasonable idea, best of both worlds. Would make for a
terrible time on the dinstall end i would guess, but if the override works
like i think it does, it shouldn't require the package control files to
be modified.

I'm guessing that x11 would imply any x11 clients that weren't kde/gnome
specific, in which case I think breaking out the core x11 stuff (xservers,
fonts, xdm, xlib) to it's own tree would make more sense.
