Hmm, this might or might not be the correct information. Because the
dependencies of a package depen on its architecture, and any
Multi-Arch markings, so simply dumping anything installed from the
status file that matches the package name of a Depends might give
A way to solve this could be to check which packages satisfy those
dependencies using one of the Dpkg perl modules.
