Adding file permissions to /var/lib/dpkg/*.list

Hello all,

I would probably be a nice feature to have file permissions added to
/var/lib/dpkg/*.list files for several reasons.

In case of mistakes all file permissions could be restored. It would
facilitate installed package verification, eliminating the need for
tripwire. Perhaps you can think of more.

RPM does it, Solaris pkg does it, AIX supports it. Why not dpkg?

Many thanks,

Conrado Buhrer.
