Currently any packages in main that need texlive-base or texlive-latex-base 
are going to fail to build:

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  texlive-latex-base: Depends: texlive-base (>= 2009-1) but it is not going to 
be installed
E: Broken packages

This is because texlive-base depends on luatex which is in Universe.  I took a 
quick look and it didn't seem obvious to me if it was better to split the 
package or promote luatex.  I'm leaving that to someone more familiar with the 
packages, but in the mean time, FYI.
