Or third, we could add the new path to eglibc in a stable point
update and into unstable, and either
a) have a virtual package provided, and for the core utilities
pre-depend on that virtual package (so that user systems are never
broken by the upgrade), or
b) don't multiarch the core utilities for the next stable release.
