The deselect/select application does wonderful things. However with
sophistication comes complexity and confusion, and this package can be
confusing - to a new user or someone coming from the slackware
It would be nice if the package could appear more visually
inutative. Obviously with losing any of its functionality. I have
found the dependancy list to be a bit confusing also...
However - I think the overall package is GrEaT !!! Everyone take a bow
for your exceptional efforts...
