Thanks for the quick response. But I fear that a binNMU will be required
once both libgcrypt11 1.4.6-2 and libgpg-error 1.10-0.2 entered debian
I cannot prove this right now, as the libgcrypt11-udeb package is not
available yet, but from what I know since yesterday, libgcrypt11-udeb
might depend on libgpg-error0 instead of libgpg-error0-udeb, as the
latter is not available from Debian archives yet.
Sorry for the extra work, but I wasn't aware of this fact up to now.

To my understanding, udebs mustn't depend on any non-udeb package, as
only udebs are available to satisfy dependencies in debian-installer.
