Debian is dropping acpi and acpi-support-base from the default install
because they conflict with systemd. They are dropping them even for
those installations that use sysv-init, because even those Debian
installations use the systemd login demon (which seems to take over the
jobs of acpi, for some reason.

Just a warning that we should watch for these things is when we base
our installer on Debian's -- we may have to install default packages
that Debian has dropped.

redundant packages.
