Actually, while that's true for '+', '-', and so on, it's not true for
keys like 'R' that are in the "Quit, exit, overwrite" section of
dselect's keystroke help screen. As far as I know, "this level" means
that if you're in the main package selection view then it applies to all
packages, while if you're in a conflict resolution display then it
applies only to packages in that display.
