that's exactly what I thought it would do ...) The set-up seems to

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

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
