A problem here is that the first time a user is presented with
'dselect' after an installation it can be a wee bit intimidating (it
intimidates me and I've been using Debian a long time), enough so that
I still use dpkg in preference to dselect...  Anyone out there know
anything about good interface design? ( I unfortunately don't )

No slights on Ian, dpkg, or dselect here, but I still think dselect
needs a bit of interface work...
