I upgraded to unstable yesterday, and had no problem. dselect automatically
selected nfs-server, telnetd, etc., so I didn't have to do any of that.

Does dselect automatically select anything in the base section and anything in
priorities Important and Standard? Or have those packages been selected for me
the way the new split ones from unstable were?
