backing-up dselect state files



hi everybody,

I see all dselect stuff live in /var/lib/dpkg; I'd say /var is not a
safe place to keep such important stuff; any opinions?

now some questions:

- what files should I backup from /var/lib/dpkg to be able to resume
  using dselect in case of crash in /var?

- is there a program that would scan the filesystem and re-build
  dselect's state files?

TIA!
