Re: Student Looking for A Final Year Project

  Aside from the fact that the specific packages may not handle this
gracefully, and that you may not be able to get old versions of the package,
writing (or modifying) a tool to do this is pretty trivial.  Whether it
should be integrated into an apt frontend is another question..I could
add this to aptitude, but I think it's not very useful there; a command-line
utility makes a lot more sense to me.
