For some systems, it's nice to not have the `-s' there; to not let it
install a bunch of stuff, then run a `dpkg --set-selections <
myselections', `apt-get dselect-upgrade'. We need a better way to do
that though; more like a `kickstart' thing, I guess, involving
`debconf' and some sort of cluster thingy? You tell me and we'll
both know. (YTMAWBK)
