Bug#170850: user-installable .debs

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.9
Severity: wishlist

Hi, I think it would be a great addition to the deb package system if some packages could be labeled user-installable.

i.e., something analogous to
./configure --prefix=$HOME/Programs
when compiling from source.

This would be useful if, for example, I wanted to install my favorite text editor on a machine I don't have root access to. Of course, since dependencies in the main package db might disappear at any time, we would also need an operation that searches for broken dependencies between the user's db and the main db.
