I'd assumed that there were just two package states concerning that:
manually installed: not marked with A
auto-installed: marked with A
Even if there's a third, neutral, unmarked state - it's still a
problem in my eyes when users switch from dselect to aptitude. Where
does it say "thou shalt only use one package managing frontend?"
