Wait, does this mean that there is actually some people out there who is
still typing package names?

I thought that everybody was just copypasting them from some web page /
running apt from a script that had been curled and piped to the shell!

(or — but this is getting a bit OT for this list — using tab to complete
the name, or some other sensible way not to type long lists of names
multiple times, including using orchestration tools etc.)
