Well, we can't add AbiSuite to Slink--it was already released sometime
in March. Also, we have dependencies that Slink can't directly provide
(GTK 1.2, etc.).

Potato, however, is a different story. I've worked with Darren Benham
to sort out the packaging details, but I just haven't had time to
do the official maintainer things to get it added.
