That looks about right (plus some -dbg packages).  Nothing depends on
libgnustep-base1.16-libffi, or on gnustep-back0.14-* (except for
gnustep-back0.14 itself).

Sounds good.

I have uploded gnustep-base, -gui, and -back to experimental for now.  I
have uploaded gnustep-make to unstable because it doesn't
introduce/remove any packages.
