dpkg -c gives me a file list.  That is not what I want.  I like to RTFM
that's inside the package itself,  BEFORE installing.  Simply put, I
always want all of a package ... And I don't always want to install the
part I do want to the proper location.
Use mc to brows inside a DPKG file and see what you get :)
