Wanting a second party Debian package downloader.
Debian`s package managers are very heavy weight.

Portable to most Linuxes ( Bash or C compiled ).
GUI would be nice ( GTK ), but it`s not necessary.

Surely someone has written a Debian package downloader
for source and binary files that handles dependencies.

Purpose:
To download and make different Linux distro`s packages.
Some packages will be made of binary files.
Some compiled with "--prefix" for abnormal path install.

### Download package and dependencies needed. NO install.
