Bleh. Guys, please file the bug on debootstrap *before* adding new
dependencies to base packages and breaking it completely. 

Joey, are you sure it wouldn't have been better to make base-config use
aptitude if present, and file a wishlist bug on debootstrap to ensure
its presence on normal installs?

-dpkg guys, cc'ed so we don't get the same thing happening with the
presumably forthcoming dselect package. -boot guys, cc'ed in the probably
vain hope that anyone else likely to do this in future will notice too.

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG signed mail preferred.
