One think that is trully needed are more accurate documentation on how it
works. I remember back then when i tried to use deselect on my 68030 based
amiga, that it was rather annoying to use it, because you didn't really know
what you have to do to use it. But then it was really very slow on my setup,
and i gave it off quickly, to resoret to plain old dpkg.

Sorry for giving unwanted advice ... :)))
