Ok, it seems there are no objections, so I'm going to apply it today.
FYI, it touches the following packages:
Only db and lilo get coreutils removed from depends array.
Udev needs coreutils because of sbin/migrate_udev script.
Other packages used /bin/true but didn't contain coreutils in depends.
I think a pkgrel bump for db and lilo is needed so we get rid of
cyclic depends before the ISO release.
