What defines a package as being 'selected'? I would think that it would
mean those packages that have been selected via the dselect 'Select'
stage. However, output seems to suggest that the --(get|set)-selections
only print what's installed, not what's been selected. Is my
understanding of this incorrect (*very* possible)?
