Well, it hasn't really been tested much yet, but ...

Hm. There seem to be five ways to get anna to select something for
* declare Enhances: on something that's already installed (will
install the package by default, or at least it's supposed to,
although I'm not sure I believe the code);
* be a kernel module udeb;
* be priority standard or above (will install the package by default);
* be queued by something else using anna-install (will install the
package by default);
* provide a menu item.
None of these exactly seem appropriate. Would anyone object if it became
priority standard? I guess the lowmem people would be very unhappy with
It would be good if anna-install could be souped up so that you could
run it from the command line after anna runs the first time and have it
retrieve and install a package and any necessary dependencies. It
doesn't even seem necessarily too hard ...
In lieu of that, I guess I could add an Installer-Menu-Item: field so
that anna will offer it for retrieval in expert mode and an
isinstallable maintainer script which always fails so that main-menu
won't actually put it on the menu. Joey, how evil does that sound?

libc6-udeb, libcrypto0.9.7-udeb, libnss-files-udeb, and zlib1g-udeb.
