 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)
