Bug#226180: x11-common: readline prompts are enabled by a separate package

Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.0.22
Followup-For: Bug #226180

It occured to me that the readline mode of Debian configurator, 

  DEBCONF_FRONTEND=readline dpkg-reconfigure

will show default prompts when libterm-readline-gnu-perl is installed.
This was suggested by debconf(7) from debconf-doc.

The auxiliary readline package is already automatically suggested by 
the debconf package.
