understand its way of working quite fastly :)
	The problem I find in dselect (from Hamm) is that is pretty slow when
changing stuff installed. "this program yes, this program no, this program
no..." Apart, there is such an amount of info there that dizzies me. I
prefer to read the "Packages" file and install material with the info it
