Why abort? Just install the other things you want later. You can always
uninstall/install whatever the hell you want whenever you want.

And if you don't like dselect, do an `apt-get install aptitude`. It's
much, much nicer.

There doesn't need to be a time other than the first one. If you screw
up in dselect, let it finish, and you can always go back into it.
