I used dselect [-1] weeks ago. 
As a data point, my third and last debian install was unstable on June
19, 2001, booted from the two i386 1.44M potato disks. Since then I've
intentionally used aptitude (backed up by dpkg when I've been terminally
stupid) to keep that installation working, lean, and to my taste. What's
dselect, and who needs apt? :)
