So that means that if I use a Debian-Lite install I can't ever upgrade
to a full installation from there? I missed the original post, but
keeping a dpkg/dselect around for the eventual upgrade to full Debian
(which may never occur) seems perfectly reasonable. *Dropping* the
newbie into dpkg/dselect is probably less so, but when they grow
conversant I see no reason to deny them dpkg/dselect, or to force them
