It would be nice if I could now whether I installed a packages manually 
via dpkg -i and m-a a-i, well which uses dpkg, it whether apt-get or 
aptitude installed it, i.e. whether I installed the package via a package 
manager or a package repository manager.

This way I could purge files that are still no longer available in the 
archive but have been before, without removed self compiled kernels, 
modules or packages installed from files.
