"Debian Jessie Modular"

Turns out... When multiple sfs's containing .deb's are layered, when they are loaded using dpkg -i *.deb they wont always be loaded in a order that satisfies all packages. Running a second time resolves that. In some cases you might even have to run a third (or maybe more) times ... until a clean load occurs.

For instance if a package requires a lib that isn't being loaded until later, then the second time through that will have already been installed and be available. Three times is the maximum number of re-running dpkg -i *.deb that I've seen being required (so far). I guess some cases might need a 4th run ... but suspect that would be rare (if ever).

The three case was for setting up a multi-media center with skype, kodi, pavucontrol ...etc. and suspect that the third iteration was only being driven by skype requiring 386 libs.
