pcmcia-cs is needed, or at least is extremely important, on some systems.
It's priority extra because if you *don't* have a laptop, there's really
no reason to have it installed.

PPP is a very similar situation, I think.  On nearly all of my systems,
there is no conceivable scenario in which PPP would be used.  It all
depends on where you use Debian.
