Bug#195628: dselect: Please provide option for old behavior

Subject: dselect: Please provide option for old behavior 
Package: dselect 
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-05-31
Severity: wishlist
Please at least provide the option for dselect to conform to the old
behavior, specifically so that a) selected packages are not changed without the
user's knowledge; b) selecting a package for remove, purge, or hold brings
up a conflict resolution dialog in which the status of affected packages
can be viewed and modified (and further conflicts associated with such
modifications can be resolved in the same way); c) the option of dselect 
conforming to Recommends dependencies is available; d) selecting a package
for installation brings up a conflict resolution dialog showing the modified
status of packages when Recommends are enforced; or if these options are
available in the current version, please provide documentation with
information on how to activate these options.
Thank you for your time and consideration and your contribution to the
Debian project.
