I know that somewhere there is a command to list all installed packages
Perhaps "dpkg --get-selections" would be a good starting point?
I completely forgot about dpkg, I'm so used to apt.
This seems great for the purposes of the script. Running that returns

going to write a script up, test and rework it, then post it here for
feedback. Any other ideas are welcome in the meantime.
