	How can one ensure that a script is run ``at the end''? This
 seems prime candidate for the much talked about dpkg hooks, but those
 are not yet implemented. 

	It would be nice to be able to break processing into parts,
 but short of a cron job or something, unless there is dpkg support
 that I am unaware of, this is hard to do.
