Indeed; especially if you are coming from apt-get. But, if you think
about it, do users want to keep all the debs they have downloaded? In
some circumstances on some machines I know I do, but, on the whole,
updating and upgrading is without regard to future problems. Anyway,
snapshot.debian.org is at hand.

I'm moved to suggest that apt rather than apt-get is the recommended
utility to be advised in debian-user. Fewer keystrokes. :)
