That's an interesting idea Buck Fankers, the snapshoot implementation. As soon as I have a spare empty computer I will try that out, Or can I do that using a virtual box?
Could be, I don't know, didn't try it, not using virtual boxes any more, but interesting idea. Let us know, if you try it.

So if you install a deb and nothing gets removed and you don't overwrite any file (it would prompt you and you'd have to use --force-overwrite) then it can't really break your system
Good to know, thanks!
