Bug#257059: xdebconfigurator: Dependencies

The OpenOffice.org Debian packages solve this by preprocessing debian/control 
to allow both normal and Woody builds, for example. But sure, it adds a layer 
of complexity.

It would be nice with *one* library... :)

Yes, that sounds good. Thanks a lot. Again.
