Many thanks, Andy.  Your suggestion works.

Any documentation you could point me to would be a help.

I am wondering if there are any provisions for anything other than "install?"

Perhaps you or someone is already doing this, so my suggestion may be
moot.  For each package, could the package name be prefixed by an
operator to indicate what action to take?

+  install  <default, assumes install if no operator specified as is
done currently>
-  uninstall
~  reinstall
^  source

--packages curl,-apache,+apache2,+apache2-devel,~bind,^httptunnel

This line would indicate:

install curl, uninstall apache, install apache2 and apache2-devel,
reinstall bind, get source for httptunnel
