Nice command. If found some 76 packages, including, for example, gcc-4.8, setcd, wmtime...

Thanks to all also for the apt- and debfoster- based methods. They need more thought.

On the dark side, something bad happened during the upgrade, which I only realized later:

*pulseaudio* was surreptitiously installed. Beowulf worked well without it, and Chimaera also worked well as soon as I removed it.

*python* was not installed at all. How come?
