Re: file filtering in dpkg -i

Hello Jean-Christophe,

please keep me in CC, it's rather painful to hand-craft a properly threaded

Yes, we do need to account for this case. Tollef's patch has some code
for that, however, it does not currently work. I'll fix this.

For the record, I got it almost (except for above case) working now,
with --include and --exclude options. I wrote a bunch of test cases,
which now just have one failure left.
