But this is just the way the old script is working (AFAIK)--and it's
definitely too slow.

What's your (Carey) problem with my script? dpkg-perl is thought as a
programming interface to dpkg--so it's quite compatible. And it's way
faster than the old one. (Of course, if you have a better idea, please let
me know.)
