(Belatedly) that is good info about dpkg working well in emergencies because
it is low level and can be used from rescue disk to a target system.  I will
probably use that lesson someday.  8O

But I've got the apt-cacher system going now so I know what I have archived,
downloaded once to storage, without bloating my /var partition.  Disk space
can come in handy. :)
