bah. dselect is one of the most confusing things I have ever
seen. Much easier to do:
dpkg --get-selections > selections
then edit the file "selections" so that the word "hold" is replaced
with "installed" for the package you want to hold, and then:
dpkg --set-selections < selections
dselect is evil, I am sure of it.
