The main questions are: What do we want the barebones images to do? And do 
we want the barebones image to be self-contained (being fully built for the 
source in the repository)?

Obviously the latter is no longer the case with the removal of sed, or 
actually: the barebones image is broken now. If we don't mind outsourcing 
mandatory packages, we can as well do that radically for all ported 
software. Maybe save those using private API (like gdb).
