debfoster only asks about installed packages : "Keep, Y/N" and keeps all
dependant installed packages on "Y" , or adds another question about
keeping dependencies on a "N".
after first succesful run, you're only asked about newly installed
packages from that moment on..

debfoster installation has no real dependencies (just already installed
libc iirc) and it's just one command to run (=easy to remember).
