I wrote a script that tsorts all debian packages (in avail and status) and and working on how that may be used.

I notice this probem: it is pretty but is very mis-informational

$apt-cache dotty dpkg > dot ; dotty dot

        shows 'dselect' as SAME but HIGHER relationship AS LIBC6

                dpkg never mentions dselect except by SUGGESTS
                (and I'm unsure I didn't check)

        shows 'wine' as EQUAL rel. to dpkg as 'timezone' is !!

# (a script I use that takes all deps and uses tsort-out file to order them VERY quickly)

# this shows depends and pre-depends but not sugests - meaning 'wine' isn't in there ...

./show-deps dpkg
