	I've been searching in vain for Debian's XML catalogs. Since
matters came to a head for me, I sat down and wrote some catalogs. A tar
file is attached. Please note (1) I have no idea whether this will work
for you in your proposed xml-base / xml-common package. If it works, well
and good. It works for me at any rate. (2) On the assumption that XML
catalogs need not have to deal with SGML document DTD, when I cloned only
the referenced XML related files from /etc/sgml/catalog. If this is an
incorrect assumption, please let me know.
