Based on the files installed, it should also be possible to suggest
which Debian packages to install (in most cases, at least). For example,
if /usr/bin/lynx was previously installed, your script could search the
Contents-arch file and suggest the lynx Debian package to be installed.
I think that'd be really neat (as an option).
