EXPERIMENTAL: Portext a source package including all dependencies.

Intended to help porting larger 'projects' (f.e. desktop environments) with a lot of source packages and inter-package build dependencies.

This still has a lot of rough edges. Use with care.

This tool uses the apt cache of the system it is run on. This needs to be set up pior to running. For example:

1. Run this in on system you want to PORT TO (f.e..: buster, 'deb' apt lines for buster). 2. Add 'deb-src' apt lines for the system you want to PORT FROM (f.e.: bullseye, 'deb-src' apt lines for bullseye). 3. sudo apt-get update 4. mini-buildd-super-portext -v http://admin@localhost:8066 http://localhost:3142/debian//pool/main/k/kguiaddons/kguiaddons_5.70.0-2.dsc buster-test-unstable

Per default, this will just print a list of DSC URLs it would portext (in this order). Use --upload to actually run 'the portexts'.
