Bug#4448: dselect performance gripe

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.2.14elf

When one fires up dselect, puts all packages on hold, chooses one tiny
little package to install --- say, jgraph --- then hits the big
install button ... it takes FOREVER as a long long list of "skipping
deselected package mumble ..."'s scrolls by at an agonizingly slow
pace.  This should not take so long.  And also (unless some internal
dselect extra verbosity switch is enabled) it's pretty useless

It seems to me that installing one package using dselect should be
about as pleasant and fast as installing it directly using dpkg (which
I am making a point of not learning, to preserve my purity as naive
debian critic).
