Unrelated question - how do you find what packages are on hold, and/or
unhold them? I just did an apt-get dist-upgrade to potato (finally got a
CD!!!) and found that the kbd package was held, for no reason that I could
discern. I tried to find what I should have been looking at to notice this
earlier, bit I couldn't see anything. I managed to force kbd to upgrade, but
I'd rather know how to unhold it, so the dist-upgrade could work by

A method not involving dselect would be useful - I dislike dselect in
general, and in particular I can't use it easily over a telnet session, due
to stupid colour-handling problems in my telnet client which make dselect
unreadable and which I haven't the time to fix :-(
