aptsh looks interesting, based on the manpage.  feta looks bloody
wild!  :-)  Thanks for those, and what an interesting list of stuff
they pull in (here, at least):

  alien auto-apt dctrl-tools debfoster debhelper deborphan debsums
  dialog dpkg-repack fakeroot grep-dctrl html2text intltool-debian
  libbeecrypt6 libmail-sendmail-perl librpm4 libsqlite3-0 po-debconf
  rpm sudo

I can do without rpm, alien, and sudo, but there's a few things there
I didn't know I didn't have (custom install).

Thanks for that too.  Have fun.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
