Possible updates to ncurses, vte and ttf-dejavu packages for d-i

Hi Release Team!

I am working on solving a quite old issue (#339855) in the graphical
version of the debian-installer: it does not currently provide an easy
way to get a shell.

A solution for this issue has been proposed to the debian-installer
team [1], which would require changes in the ncurses, vte and ttf-dejavu
packages in order to create new udebs with the needed libraries and

The d-i team has not settled yet on including the changes for Lenny, but
as the freeze is coming fast, it makes sense to know if the release team
would accept these updates before discussing it further.

So, would you do that? :)
