Bug#250258: dpkg: update-alternatives --flush and --flush-all command

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.21
Severity: wishlist

Disk crash destroyed many files in /usr/bin (fortunately, /etc and /var
directories were not affected by this error). When I reinstalled all
packages I found that in /usr/bin there were still missing many
symlinks managed by update-alternatives.

My wishlish for update-alternatives is a command (--flush, --check or
--force?), that reads alternatives configuration from /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives
and checks that symlinks from /usr/bin to /etc/alternatives exists and
symlinks from /etc/alternatives match user configuration.
