WRT xine-lib, you should be making use of xine-list-1.1 (or xine-list-1.2, if
you happen to be using libxine-dev from experimental). This is used to ensure
that the MIME types list for your desktop file is correct; see also gxine
source (specifically, debian/gxine.postinst.in and debian/gxine.postrm, and
the corresponding rules in debian/rules).

You need to depend on ${xine-x:Depends} (I want to get rid of libxine1's
dependencies on libxine1-x and libxine1-console) and, once the next xine-lib
upload is done, you should also be able to recommend ${xine-ffmpeg:Depends}
instead of libxine1-ffmpeg.

To do this, you need to run dh_xine prior to running dh_gencontrol. This is
not automated with dh 7 (actually, not yet; I have local changes which should
allow this).

As things stand, just "dh_xine" will do; after the next xine-lib upload,
"dh_xine x ffmpeg" will generate the substvars referenced above (for all
packages created from your source package; debhelper's -p option applies).

(Don't ask me about how to do this with cdbs...)
