not sure, but I've done the dpkg --get-selections >selections and
imported on another machine(running the same distribution) several
times with complete success. I probably wouldn't try it with different
distributions since chances are perhaps some packages have been
changed..but if your going from stable -> testing on a new machine I'd
rather go stable->stable then upgrade the new machine to testing *after*
all the packages have been installed from stable.
