I beg to differ: Both dselect and aptitude are only frontends to
dpkg/apt-get and are both not needed for package administration.
When the going gets really tough then there's actually only dpkg and
apt-get. Neither dselect nor aptitude or whatever frontend to dpkg there
might be can replace the original.
I've only used dpkg and apt-get in the past years and see no need for aany
frontend. I've never bothered about learning how to use yet another
frontend since apt-get usage definitely already is a no-brainer. That's why
it strikes me as being so silly that dselect still can't be uninstalled
after all these years... :-/
