I don't have any problem at all with the interface of dselect, but I
wish it would not depend on the correctness of the Packages.gz file to
operate correctly. WIBNI there was an option where dpkg --avail -R
were run on the three directories given in ``[A]ccess'' and dselect
used that information?
I think that could be done without too much restructuring in the
dselect code (though I know none of it).
Disregard if you don't like this suggestion,
