Sorry, I still don't understand...

Above you wrote "<blend>-all package" but in your other post in this 
thread you wrote "<blend>-all file".

If "file" was a typo, then does that mean that _any_ *.deb package in 
Debian in section "metapackages" with package name "*-all" will get 
included in the blends list in debian-installer?  I can easily do that, 
but suspect I am missing some more constraints.

If instead "package" was a typo, what is the full path of that *-all 
file, and what is the syntax of its contents?
