I stand corrected. Julien convinced my on irc that a transition plan is
needed. Fortunately it turned out to be pretty easy:
libxine1-plugins will depend on libxine1-x and libxine1-console until
lenny. after lenny is released, these two dependencies will be
dropped. For that reason my initial announcement mail still stands
