It looks great. I noticed one problem, that version numbers with an
epoch get mangled when creating the file name for the deb, so all
epoch'ed debs get deleted, even if that version is currently installed.
I have attached a patch that I think fixes it. As I've barely touched
python, you should check my fix. I don't know if there are any
characters besides ":" that get mangled in deb names; that's the only
one that my patch handles. It seems to do the right thing for me.
Thanks again for the script!
