Is there a way in Aptitude or dselect to clear all holds on updates?

A previous manager put a lock on just about everything prefering to do it
himself, and I want to go back to using aptitude recommends.
I think something like

  aptitude -o 'APT::Ignore-Hold = true' upgrade

will do the trick. (Warning: untested.)

There is also an --ignore-holds flag in apt-get (but you specified that
you want to use aptitude).
Apt would be fine also if there is a way to turn off all of the holds. Or maybe there is a text file someplace that stores it and I can do a SED command on. I want to go back to the original settings and let the catalog decide what should or shouldnt be upgraded.
