I don't know if all udebs are automatically included in d-i, but if they
are, I doubt d-i people will like the additional 1.3MB uncompressed.

OT, but speaking of minimizing the delta between Debian and Ubuntu, the
following changes are pointless:
    - Link using -Bsymbolic-functions
    - Add missing zlib1g-dev to -dev
    - Build-depend on libreadline6-dev instead of libreadline5-dev.
(If you need to know why, please ping me off-list and off-bug)
