Is there some secret mode in console-apt that makes it tell you what
*other* packages it's going to upgrade or remove as a result of
upgrading a particular package (because they're dependencies, or
conflicts), like dselect does?
I find the default behavior (just doing things behind your back) way too
dangerous to be useful.
[I realize that it highlights them in the package list, but it does so
silently, and it's rather hard to notice such changes in the very very
long list of packages...]
Also, is there any concept of `hold', since the help screen doesn't say.
