Greetings!  Please accept my apologies.  I didn't actually check dpkg
itself, but made an inference from the numerous support programs (such
as dpkg-source, etc.)  that the whole package system was written in
perl.  Dpkg itself is indeed in C.  Would we gain any speed by writing
the dpkg-* programs in C as well?
