No, I am simply saying that aptitude simply solves better the dependencies
than dselect [1], so, if you have problems because dselect is choosing a
solution that you don't like when solving package dependencies then give a
try to aptitude.

I was attacked by dselect as a small child and have since avoided debian. –
