I think this part of the discussion belongs on the dissent list.

If anyone cares what I think (and I'm sure no one does) I'd leave dselect pretty 
much as it is, and focus all efforts on a perfect deity. I hate dselect, but it does 
work, and for the most part is unproblematic. Hacking something together 
screams of a good way to create new bugs, incompatibilities, or a more 
diffficult transition over to the new system.
