I never can never remember: what comes first, "hold" or the
packagename... Is there any danger in trying to set the status of the
package called "hold" (if one exists) to "libldap2-dev"? Or, will it
generate an error? (I think this would produce an error, but it still
makes me a bit nervous).
Personally I would like to be able to do something like:
dpkg --setstatus hold libldap2-dev libsasl-dev libhsync0 libhsync-dev
all on the one dpkg command line.
