Oh, good.  :-)  I was wondering about the ICE socket directory, which is set 
up in /etc/init.d/x11-common, but I suppose libice6 doesn't use it directly?

Now, what does libx11-6 need x11-common for?... does it need the server socket 
directory, or does it need Xsession.d?  The rest of x11-common is actually 
man pages and the like, but that presumably doesn't justify a Depends: 

I'm also awfully curious as to what part of xutils depends on x11-common.  
Because the only three packages left depending on x11-common are 
xserver-common, libx11-6, and xutils.
