About 18% of the lines in my /etc/setup/installed.db end in " 1",

that's exactly what I thought it would do ...) The set-up seems to
possess full functionality. Can anybody explain / interpret the
different endings?

For the code challenged 0 means dependencies of packages you picked flagged by 
1.
Packages which aren't installed aren't recorded in installed.db
(hence the name).  This hasn't changed.
