Hmm, if it's even unstable for the upstream maintainers...

Later this year.

Urgh!  Ok, that's not good.  Please remove charset.alias from the 
coreutils binary package.  There's no reason to provide it.  As far as
readlink(1) is concerned, I guess it makes sense to use the coreutils
version and remove the cygutils version.

What about uptime?  I guess it should stay in procps, and not be packed
with coreutils to keep problems at a minimum.

I guess, yes.
