Can someone please grep for xbase in slink's Packages file, and
do a massive bug submitting on those packages?
Prefferably 'Severity: important', if we still have time to fix
them all, before slink gets released?

xbase is a virtual empty package, it is not logical that anything
depends on it. Furthermore, people said that after you upgrade
hamm to slink, you should be able to remove xbase package, since
it is not needed anymore. With packages' silly dependencies, this
is impossible (without forcing anyway).
