is there a set of command parameters to aptitude or the apt-* utils to
just output which packages have updates available? i'd like something
like "aptitude -V -n dist-upgrade" .. where -n is default 'no' to all

apt-get -s dist-upgrade will simulate the upgrade. Not sure about
aptitude, but I guess it will have a similar flag.
