  Because rdist is just like cp. It will only distribute directories
(actually files also, but it will be very difficult to rdist 10-20k
files of a traditionnal Debian system).

      The idea behind dpkg-record/dpkg-replay is flexibility and
simplicity. You can install whatever package wherever you
want automatically (if you have installed this package already).
