Unless anyone has a reason to suspect that a re-packaging will make it
into woody updates, I suggest that you only draw results from sarge and
sid.  For instance, #232885 (celestia 1.2.2) is only in woody; the 1.3.0
version in sarge/sid already has celestia-common.  Other large offenders
in waste2.txt (e.g., libxalan1.2-dev) are also woody-only.
