The trouble is that if I try to remove xdm in dselect, it tries to remove
xbase as well. I think xdm should maybe depend on xbase but I really don't
think it should be the other way around. I understand why this might have
been done ... the tradeoff being that there would be more complaints if
XDM went away than if it suddenly appeared but I wish I could get rid of
it without making dselect scream about xbase all the time.
