[dpkg] Installing software as a non privileged user - A suggestion

I don't know if this has been discussed here before.

Is it possible for a non privileged user to use dpkg to install a package
under the user's home directory?  I know this kind of installation is not
perfect.  But sometimes it is helpful.  What are the pros and cons of this
kind of an approach?
