  That's what I meant, too. [0]  Well, updated packages are separated and
listed as "Upgradable", but dselect does that as well.


  [0] well, it's really "new since the last time [1] you cleared the list of
  new packages, unless you told it to clear that list every time you
  quit", but that's a mouthful.

  [1] The first time you start the program, no packages are marked as
  "new", because marking every package as "new" would be useless.
