Bug#169338: it would be nice if apt-get had an hold option.

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.4
Severity: wishlist

Hello, ...

It would be really nice if apt-get had an option to put a package (or
list of packages) on hold, currently you have to do something like :

# echo -e '<package>\thold' | dpkg --set-selections

which could well be emulated by a :

# apt-get hold <package>

It is already possible to unhold a package by doing the install step.
