Bug#253229: Please add libfribidi0 to the debootstrap package list

Package: debootstrap
Version: 0.2.39

I'm filing this bug to request that libfribidi0 be added to the base
package list for sid/sarge.  This package must be part of the base
system in order for debconf to be localized into Hebrew and Arabic,
because slang1a-utf8 must depend on it for RTL text to display
correctly.  I'm requesting this change pre-emptively, so that it might
be possible to add bidi/shaping support to slang for sarge without
disrupting the debian-installer testing process.

A patch is now available to add bidirectional text and glyph shaping
support for slang, and I'm hoping to be able to include it in d-i itself
soon; it therefore doesn't seem premature to raise the question of
supporting bidi in the installed system.
