Probably. And though I love cats, I feel the need to point
something out... As Einstein said:
You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat.
You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los
Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly
the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there.
The only difference is that there is no cat.
With that in mind, it's a little cleaner to run this instead:
dpkg --set-selections < my-pkg-list
