Normally, I'd agree with you.  However, apt-listchanges was
automagically removed from my boxen several months ago.  Worse,
installing apt-listchanges depends on python-apt, which -- in turn --
depends on two (2) virtual packages that do *not* exist:

   libapt-inst-libc6.3-5-1.0
   libapt-pkg-libc6.3-5-3.3

Personally, I'd love to be using apt-listchanges again ;>

What do you think?
