  I wrote a perl script to do something related, it will read in a list
 of packages installed upon a machine, then write that list to a cache

  If you run it again it will show what packages have been added/removed
 since the previous run.

  Packaged for Debian and available here:


	(The name is dpkg-changes)

  Updating it to read in a new list would be trivial, as would
 downloading the packages via a shell-out to apt-get.

  I hope that's useful to you.
