I still use dselect with dpkg-ftp on all of my Debian systems,
including the one I'm writing this mail on and my colo, chiark.
It works just fine. I do have to nursemaid it a bit, particularly
when the dependencies are broken. I use dpkg -iGROEB on the dpkg-ftp
download area without problem, too.
I think the bug should remain `wishlist'. One of these days some
luddite like me might get around to improving the situation ...
