Bug#229715: apt: Add a "postinst command spool"

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.20
Severity: wishlist

When similar packages are installed, apt is likely to run some identical
command from the postinst scripts multiple times, and this is
inefficiently time-consuming (e.g. mkfontdir or ldconfig).

Apt should include a manner to add some commands in a spool, and those
commands would be run only when all packages have been unpacked.
