We'll also have to update base-files so that /etc/nsswitch.conf no
longer has 'compat' for passwd, group, and shadow.

Oh, and you'll have to run s/compat/files/ on /etc/nsswitch.conf after
installing the new glibc.  Unfortunately the failure mode is not very
instructive - you just can't log in anymore.

Does the postinst take care of this?  Should it?
