Either we leave "apache-ssl" here, or we take "apache" and additional
"libapache-mod-ssl" - which alternative does work better?

There is zip-crypt that provides zip, "apt-get install zip" would
resolve this automaticaly.

Would it make any sense to install kaffe?

Apropos Pilot stuff, since pilot-still is already included there should
be "jpilot" too.

If you wish, but don't take dpkg-dev 1.9.9, it has important bugs

But which one? mozilla-cvs (0.9.1) from
deb http://www.debian.or.jp/~kitame/mozilla/ ./
did work quite good for me now.

ACK. Some European locales should be enabled too.

Hm, I didn't...

I prefer the first solution.

Is there any way to restart apt-get from a postinst/preinst script, or
to restart it immediately after the installation with specified options?
I imagine a debconf dialog box asking:
- Configure and install XFree 3.3.6 now?
- Configure and install XFree 4.0.x now?
The first option would install the current task-x-window-system (with
anXious configuration), the other one would install the XFree-4.x

Hm. Another idea could be Opera, but it is evil non-free payware and
should not be included on Debian CDs - not yet.
