This must be my second or thir mail to the list, again sorry for my
poor english. Well, mc (or gmc) is really cool, but you can browse a
.deb file with "less":

add this to /etc/profile:  eval `/usr/bin/lesspipe` , source it, 
and then  less whateveryouwant.deb. Cool, isn't it? Works with .rpm,
.tar.gz, .zip too.

Usar emacs es como tirarse una licuadora. Electrizante al principio,
pero no te quedan ganas de repetir.
