You can easily mark packages for installation, upgrade, reinstallation
or removal without doing it right then.  You can easiliy set marks, then
quit aptitude to save the changes.  This is especially handy if your
users also log into their shell accounts:  Curious users can run
aptitude and see what changes are planned for the system the next time
packages get upgrades.
