No.  'dpkg-ftp' is a method for dselect to read from an FTP site in much
the same way that it would read from an NFS mount or CD-ROM.

This seems only fair since 'dftp' has added the ability to run from NFS
mount and CD-ROM.  :-)  [ check out the "--pkgpath" option ]

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
