Unfortunately, it's not that easy.

The problem is opencdk8-dev which now depends on gcrypt11, because
otherwise gnutls11 is not buildable. If I upload that to Unstable, d-i
will break *immediately*.

I could create a opencdk8.11 package, but that'd need different library
versioning tags, which would be incompatible with Upstream and presumably
cause problems with non-Debian binaries. I can do that if there's a
consensus that this is not going to be much of a problem.
