If anyone's curious, the reason I did this is that there's so much
software for debian - about 17,000 packages in i386/main - that there
are probably some you would find interesting or useful, except that
they get lost in the haystack and you never encounter them. I read a
post once in which someone bemoaned the passing of dselect, because it
highlighted newly-minted packages. With apt*, he rarely knew of that
new software, unless he just stumbled across it. I thought that was a
pretty good point.
Good point. However, aptitude always shows you new packages. IIRC,
when dselect went away, aptitude was the recommended "official" replacement.
