  I can't imagine dselect being totally dropped soon -- there will always
be some old Debian user who swears by it and refuses to give it up, ever!

  As they say, there is no accounting for tastes.

  Splitting it out of dpkg would be nice, but there are some technical
problems with that..which elude me at the moment.  I think mostly that
people who actually use dselect would have to manually install the new
package to get it back.
