This implies anacron will become yet another base pacakge.  It is
already seven disks.  I am happy w/ letting people who want it,
install it.  That makes more sense.  Besides, do we really need
another "press enter" during install.

Let's stick w/ what works, then let the user customize.

I have around 10 Debian boxen, only one of them runs anacron.
