One thing that came up is that we need to make sure all sid buildd
chroots have debconf-english installed and not debconf-i18n before that
happens (debconf-i18n depends on liblocale-gettext-perl, which depends
on perlapi-5.10.0). Cc:-ing debian-wb-team so this can be handled
before the perl transition.
