APT Change Request Check Script, Random Stuff, and More

- built a change request check script recently. You can download it here:
https://sites.google.com/site/dtbnguyen/apt_change_check-1.04.zip
- details are as follows:
# Ever go through a change request and it doesn't quite end up the way
# you planned it? This sort of helps with that.
#
# It basically does a track of all related dependencies of a relevant
# DEB package. Then it tracks the tree to see what underlying programs
# are likely to be impacted in the event of change. It also incorporates
# an Internet connectivity check since so many programs are dependent
# on this function nowadays.
#
# Run it in combination with my network_mapping script/program to smooth
# out change requests in general as it can track which programs, services,
# infrastructure, and network devices are likely to be impacted.
# http://dtbnguyen.blogspot.com/2018/04/network-mapping-tool-random-stuff-and.html
#
# It's definitely not perfect and works only on APT/Debian based systems
# at this stage (I may port it to other systems later on. The task
# clearly isn't that difficult).
#
# Sample output is in output.txt and was create through the following
# command:
# ./change_check.sh yelp sim > output.txt
#
# It obviously also has an offline download package capability for those
# systems that need to remain offline.
#
# As this is the very first version of the program it may be VERY buggy.
# Please test prior to deployment in a production environment.

Random Quotes:
- I don't work in the Russian aerospace/fighter industry, but my feeling is that (in particular) engine life has not historically been of huge concern to them. If you look back at the Soviet era, they pumped out thousands upon thousands of relatively cheap, technologically inferior jets to arm the whole of the Warsaw Pact/satellite nations. They expected to win through numerical superiority, a strategy that has been well documented, and one that might well have worked had the figurative balloon ever gone up (at least before the nukes ended everything for the whole world a few hours later). Obviously some of that went away with the dissolution of the Soviet Union, but I'd be willing to bet that the mindset hasn't changed that much. Clearly they are producing more capable aircraft, and have been since the early 1980's when the USSR still stood, but I also think that due to economic necessity, they continue to find a cost compromise in their designs, even with higher end fighters such as the Flanker family. What is an easy way to shave a little bit off development costs? Throw away engines after a few thousand hours, and they can not only be cheaper up front, but also force international buyers/foreign sales to continue to need engines/create revenue. Just my thought, could be right, could be wrong. If it were me, and I saw the need to 1) present a credible threat to the world, and 2) do it within the bounds of a pretty chronically failed national economy, this sort of design philosophy is actually pretty smart IMO.
