Update to dpkg-origins installed package lister

Fixed a serious bug with dpkg-origins (see this post about dpkg-origins).  I forgot to have it check for status 'rc' packages.  These are packages that were installed and then removed.

It now handles them correctly.  (That's what I get for testing on a brand-spanking-new installation of Ubuntu.)

I've also put a version string into it: 0.9, because I'm actually using it myself in my backup plan now, which makes it near production ready!  Go get the dpkg-origins script.
