Bug#229715: apt: Add a "postinst command spool"

The spool itself could be external to APT, but this spool has still to
be called automatically when all packages have been installed. And they
should be kept in an unconfigured state until the commands have been
exectued, as if they were part of the success of postinst.

To be very efficient, in fact, the spool should just provide a way to
APT to link commands to packages, for APT to leave in an unconfigured
state only the relevant packages, when some commands failed in the
spool.
