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 ...
