wubdepends, get Ubuntu packages for an off line machine

I ran into wubdepends in a UF thread.
christhemonkey has written a utility in python that allows to download a package from the ubuntu repositories, along with all its dependencies.

Many people around the world have problems getting online at home, or have trouble setting up a connection, and I see requests to get packages off line quite often on UF. I have not tested wubdepends, but I really like the idea. There is a .exe for windows, interesting if the only internet access point is on a Windows machine.
