...was never in Debian, iirc - it requires an older version of the flavor
which I maintain. I'm told that the main issue is that it wants to be
able to have zero-length lists. I looked into this a few months ago,
and found that debugging cpm is going to be work (it doesn't seem to
have a mode where I can run it without privileges, trace the result, etc).
When I find time to resolve those issues, I'll put out a new version of cdk...
