Duh. It's so simple, but I only just thought of it:
tar xzOf base2_2.tgz ./var/lib/dpkg/status | grep -e '^Package: ' -e '^Status: ' | grep -B 1 '^Status: .* installed' | grep '^Package: ' | cut -d ' ' -f 2
(Should all be on one line; maybe mail agents do weird things...)
If you don't understand, build up the long pipe piece by piece.
The grep on 'Status installed' is not really necessary, but in the future we
just _might_ have 'removed' packages there, so you should check anyway (and it
takes virtually no time).
