  i see what you mean now.  :)  probably will
leave it as is for the moment, i'm close enough
now that i have to check what is left by hand to
see why they're missing, i may have just not 
gotten those ones copied to the archive.  as it
stands the script is fairly done with a few added
parts.  i'll probably do that the next few days
to add a bit to generate a download script for
the missing debs.  think that will pretty much
take care of it.
