On woody this seems to only show uninstalled packages?
snoopy:unstable:~# apt-cache unmet
Package apt-move version 4.1.14 has an unmet dep:
Package hitop version 0.34-2.2 has an unmet dep:
Suggests: libpgsql2.1 (>= 7.1release)
Package kde-extras version 4:2.2.25 has an unmet dep:
Package gibraltar-bootsupport version 0.19 has an unmet dep:
Package freefem version 3.5.4-1 has an unmet dep:
Package xemacs21-gtk-mule-canna-wnn version 20010311-5 has an unmet dep:
Depends: xemacs21-gtk-bin (= 20010311-5)
but I don't have any intention of installing apt-move, hitop,
kde-extras, freefem, or xemacs21-gtk-mule-canna-wnn.
Yes, gibraltar-bootsupport does look interesting (and its corresponding
mkinitrd-cd package), but the fact remains I don't have it installed.
