ee-dselect - Debian package handling frontend

Description

ee-dselect is the Emacs user interface for managing Debian GNU/Linux packages. It is the front-end to dpkg and apt-get. However, currently it yet can't do anything beyond browsing a categorozed listings of Debian packages.

Packages in this view are categorized under the same section names as they have in the Debian packaging system. In every section they are grouped by priority.

r-filter filters out packages with architectures not equal to "all" or "i386"
c-path-finder categorizes by section name and then by priority
c-sorter sorts the categories at first level (section names) alphabetically; at second level (priorities) sorts in the pre-defined order: "required", "important", "standard", "optional", "extra"
r-sorter package records are sorted alphabetically by package name
r-printer prints package name and first line of package description
r-select creates separate window with package full description
