Right.  Just in case you hadn't thought of it you could use dselect's
ftp method and an (NFS) shared or mirrored download directory for the
two machines.  That of course presumes that you have a net connection
at home and that you don't have expensive line charges.

True.  I just don't have time for it right now.  I put in the
interactive mode as a hack until I or someone else did the dependency
ordering code.  Looks like you might be able to use pkg-order now.

I guess we can wait a bit and see if anyone else wants dftp.  If not,
it's yours.
