     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...
